After graduating from Pennsylvania State University, she taught elementary school for nearly four decades. While at Manchester Elementary School, the Pennsylvania Secretary of Education commemorated Sheila’s “excellence in teaching.” She stayed in contact for years with many of her students, delighting in their successes.
