Sheila, a Volunteer for New Horizons with a passion for helping students and faith-building.

Sheila has been a teacher her whole life and she loves it. She taught for nearly 30 years to children of all ages. Once it was time to retire, Sheila didn’t know where to go next. “I prayed to God, you know I love teaching, what else can I do? New Horizons was a real fit” she shared.
