Dear Venkata Sriramji,
That way we are all advaitins feel that we are also Shiva. "Shivoham Shivoham" as Adi Shankara's sloka says. Could you find anywhere, where Adi Shankara says that he was an avatara of Lord Shiva.

Though not explicitly, but, indirect mention is found in the
3rd shloka of
shivAnanda-lahari. (as told to me by my Sanskrit teacher)
चलद्-उरग-हारं मृग धरम्
महा-देवं देवं मयि
Bhagavatpada, while referring to Himself, uses the word
"मयि सदय-भावं" ie., exhibited compassion
My teacher told me that as Sankara was born with the grace
of Shiva and as he took birth in the womb of Aryamba endowed
Shiva's kaLa, He considered Himself blessed.
