Sheila has traveled throughout Ireland and participated in the Achill Archaeology Field School. She loves Irish history and spends quite a bit of time researching her family genealogy because it will all, one day, end up in a novel. As a teacher, she’s taught English, Social Studies, and creative writing, and has designed innovative, interactive classroom lessons. Take a look at a few of her favorite projects and published curriculum.
When she’s not teaching, she’s working on a collection of short stories and a novel-in-progress. Contact Sheila via email.
