Shelia started out as a volunteer at Clermont Head Start Program, where all of her children attended.  She was Parent President of the parent committee, and also worked as a cook for a period of time. In 1995 her love for engaging with children and seeing their faces light up with joy with every accomplishment, made her transition into the role of a teacher's assistant.

Shelia was loving, selfless, gentle, kind and her presence alone would light up a room. She had a true passion for reading, she absolutely LOVED it.
