Honored In 2016
Mrs. Sheila Sadler seemed genuinely shocked as her former teaching colleague, Tena Comte, announced her name as a new Influential Indian. Many former colleagues and students of Mrs. Sadler were eager to award her this distinction to honor her years of inspiration as one of the "all-time great teachers" in JISD. Decades of students began their early years with a solid foundation as Mrs. Sadler instilled her love for education at East Side Elementary. She served as an example to many new teachers and is still referred to as the one to strive to teach like. Her students who are now teachers credit her with their desire to go into the education field.
