Mrs. Sheila Owens, Data Analyst

 

My name is Shelia Owens. I have been married for 30 years, have 4 children and 6 grandchildren. I am from Hungerford, Texas which is about 60 miles south of Houston. Our only claim to fame is that our nearest town, Wharton (6 miles away) is the hometown of prolific journalist, Dan Rather.

I have my Bachelor's and Masters' Degrees from the University of Texas at Arlington and have been in education for 21 years. I decided to work in education because I come from a family of educators and because I was very active in my children's school when they were young.  The administration suggested that I pursue it as a career. I took their suggestion and have no regrets! I have enjoyed all these 21 years working with students, teachers and other colleagues in the various positions and schools that I have been fortunate enough to work in.

Ms. Jaleesa Dunn, Behavior Interventionist

 

I am from Union Spring, Alabama. I come from an area that is rich in culture and historical significance. I am an avid reader and enjoy reading in my spare time. I am passionate about increasing the emotional health of the students and realized through my previous work experience than an improvement in emotional health often results in an improvement of academic performance. I have an eclectic background as a social worker that includes medical case management, public health, child welfare, crisis intervention and psychotherapeutic services. The previous skills I obtained assist with better serving the students at Sunrise McMillan Elementary.

My position as an Intervention Specialist allows me to work with students and parents to meet the social, emotional and behavioral concerns that impacts the student’s performance. I provide support to families with resource linkage and the identification and implementation of effective coping skills to support the further development of positive self-regulation. This is my second school year with the Jaguar Family and I look forward to continuing to serve the students, staff and parents of Sunrise McMillan!
