Sheila W. Cockey (YANA), is a classroom teacher of secondary foreign languages and department chair for over 35 years. She now works from home, teaching special interest classes in Spanish, writing, leading workshops, presenting sessions at workshops and conferences, supervising teacher interns, and occasionally doing adjunct teaching.

She has published a variety of articles having to do with teaching methodology as well as using culture in the classroom. She holds a MALS with emphasis on Spanish and Latin American culture, and a MEd with a specialization in Educational Technology Leadership.
