Shaila graduated from the University of Wyoming with a B.A. in Family and Consumer Science with her concentration in Professional Child Development. Originally from Greybull, WY, she has lived in Laramie for the past six years, and worked in some capacity at the ECEC from the beginning. Building strong relationships with each child is important for her as she strives to create an environment where children can feel safe and loved. She believes that when children feel safe and loved, they are able of greater learning. Shaila hopes she can instill in children a love for discovery and learning.
When she is not planning of new ways to challenge her children and encourage their learning and development, Shaila enjoys reading, spending time with her family, and riding her horses.
