About Sheila

My career has spanned Elementary teaching in all grades, Bilingual teaching, Spanish to Middle School students, Adult ESL, Adult Spanish at Southern Nevada Community College, Ell Facilitator for Clark County School District, and Spanish translation services in the schools and for business. I also tutored many students in private schools in Minnesota while I taught previous to moving to Nevada.

I am presently retired but have taught for the past five years in long term positions within the school district. A vital part of my knowledge of Spanish, written and spoken is due to five study abroad programs with University of Nevada at Las Vegas. These studies included Mexico, Costa Rica, and San Sebastian, Spain.

I fully believe in education, be it formal or informal and have passionately loved teaching all of my life. I would never tire of this endeavor as it is the basis for personal and professional independence, growth and success in our lives.

I love the language and am so happy that I have avidly pursued it throughout my lifetime. Knowing another language goes far beyond the mere knowledge of that language, It encompasses the culture, people, and their history and beliefs. It makes of us a stronger person in our world, providing a bridge for communication and understanding and creating opportunities for lasting relationships.
