My name is Kathie Shinn-Sheets. I have lived in the area most of my life and received my education from PHASD
schools. I have 3 sons, Nik (PHHS graduate), Nathan (PHHS) & Zack (PHHS). I earned
my certification as a Michigan School Board member in 2009 and have continued my education in school law, finance as well
as other board responsibilities. I am well versed in Special education rules and regulations and have assisted
other parents in developing effective IEP's and implementation of such. As a trustee for the PHASD I feel that it is
vital to my sucess to not only obtain the education necessary to fulfill my duties but to be an active participant in the
lives of our students through site visits as well as extra-curricular activities. I have an open door policy and welcome
open discussions as to issues effecting students and their education.
