I am Sheila Klosterman, and I am pleased to join the Houghtaling staff, students, and parents for the 2016-17 school year. I earned my master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Alaska Anchorage in 2009 and my bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education English from Northern Arizona University in 1993. I taught English at Schoenbar Middle School the past 23 years. I was born in Ketchikan, and belong to the Tlingit tribe. My family crest is the Raven. I have four sons: Kahlil (20), Sylvan (18), Katlian (14), and Kato (4). My husband is Major Jeff Klosterman; he is currently stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. I enjoy reading, baking, working out, and being outdoors. Please visit our school to experience a dedicated, caring staff with students learning in a variety of modes.
