In 2011, she completed a M.Ed. in Special Education, General Education at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Sheila fell in love with assisting students with learning challenges. After receiving a master’s degree in 2011, she worked in various positions teaching younger children with learning disabilities in math and reading. Most recently, she taught at Atlee High School in collaborative English 10/11. She has a wonderful husband, four children, and two Bichon Frise dogs. Sheila enjoys cooking with family and friends, sitting by the water (beach, lake, or ocean), kayaking, crafting, and most especially reading.
