My name is Sheila Gauthier, the owner and provider of Angel Camp who is very involved with children and has been for over the past thirty years. Children are the central focus point in my life as they are my passion, and my dedication to teaching is one of my highest aspirations. I have three children of my own; Lillian, Joseph, and Johnathon who are actively involved with Angel Camp and have been from birth. My wonderful husband, Steven, who has his degree in the science/genetics field and currently works in the regulatory medical device field, is my licensed substitute/back-up provider. We are a very active family who enjoy the outdoors, culture, spending time in the community doing various activities, and are involved in our church.
I attended The Metropolitan State University of Denver from 1998 - 2003 taking required general studies as well as classes with an emphasis in early childhood, behavioral science, elementary education, psychology, social sciences, and children's literature.
