Sheila Stuhlsatz Obituary, Death – Sheila Stuhlsatz, the previous president of the CSTP Board of Directors, lost her battle with cancer and passed away recently. We acknowledge this news with deep regret. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband, children, teachers, and friends in the Kalama community. According to a statement released by the Kalama school system late last week, an instructor from the community passed away on Thursday after a lengthy fight with cancer. According to the Kalama School District,
Sheila Stuhlsatz worked there for a total of twenty years, during which time she held the positions of teacher, assistant principle, and principal. Her work earned her acclaim at the state level as well as at the regional level for her efforts to broaden the scope of language instruction, increase student engagement, and certify additional teachers. According to the school district, her students and coworkers gave her the nickname Maestra, which is the Spanish word for teacher.
Given that Stuhlsatz had worked as a Spanish instructor in both middle school and high school, the name was aptly chosen for him. In a statement to the faculty and staff of the school that was distributed on Friday, Superintendent Eric Nerison stated, “No one among us would characterize Sheila as anything less than a beacon of positivity.” “A few of the qualities that jump out in my mind and heart about her are her infectious grin, her sincere laugh, and her unwavering inner strength…. Maestra was a champion for all kids, whether she was serving as a Spanish teacher, an assistant principle, or the principal of the school.
