Reading Corps
 
This is my first year as a Reading Corps. tutor. I became a tutor because I wanted to help students feel confident about their reading skills and confident about themselves. Reading is so important to how we learn things and it's my goal to help students enjoy reading rather than dread it. This work is important to me because I struggled with reading when I was in elementary school. I'm so thankful to the people who made me feel confident about my reading skills and showed me how fun reading could be.
 
Hobbies/Fun facts?: I enjoy writing YA novels and hope to become a published author.

Equity Specialist

Sheila joined the Equity team in the Fall of 2013. A licensed attorney, she spent over 20 years litigating discrimination and harassment cases in the Minneapolis area. She also has extensive experience as a mediator of employment disputes. During that time, she authored a children's book on differences, which launched her passion for helping children discover the value in our diversity. Her experiences led her to wanting to find a proactive way to bring children of different cultures together early on, to avoid a future of prejudice. She is available to work with students and families on issues of diversity and equity in the classroom environment.

Social Worker

I am so excited to be a social worker at Prairie View Elementary and Middle School!  This is my third year as a social worker within the district, and I have so enjoyed working with and supporting children and families.  I grew up in Moorhead, MN where I attended Moorhead State University for my undergraduate degree in Social Work, after which I spent time working for several counties in the metro area.  I obtained my master's degree in Social Work from St. Thomas where I had the opportunity to complete an internship at an elementary school, which I absolutely loved, and have been with the schools ever since!  

I currently live in Rogers with my husband and two children.  When I am not at work, I love to spend time with my family and friends, run, cook, and shop!
