SHILOH WHEELER RESUME
My name is Shiloh Wheeler and I am a district school counselor for Thatcher Unified Schools. Thatcher has been my home base for the last 12 years and I love the small town life- for the most part. (I do enjoy a good trip to “The big city” from time to time). I was born in Gilbert and raised in Mesa until my family decided small towns were a good idea and we moved from Parker to Kearny to Williams. It was a great adventure and I graduated from Ray High School in Kearny! I continued my education at Arizona State University, then took some time to work and travel. Finally, it was time to “get serious” and I obtained my Master’s degree at Seton Hall University in New Jersey where I was currently living and teaching.
I was so happy to have the opportunity to return to my home state and work as a school counselor. I love what I do because every day is different and each day I work with amazing students. I believe all students have great potential and they need people along the way to help them figure out how to unlock that potential. I am privileged to join them in their journey for just a short time.
Outside of work, I love to travel. My husband and I have one daughter who is 10. We have hosted several exchange students because we love learning about different cultures. In the time of COVID, I rediscovered a love of reading and the outdoors. Last March when schools closed, you could find me working from my hammock in the backyard.
Having served a term on the board, I am excited about the potential to keep the passion and work going to move us even further as an association. I am also excited about the opportunity to dive a little deeper into the immediate needs of our members and how we, as an association, can better meet those needs.
