Mrs. Winans is a very proud mom to her son, Jack, who is a sophomore at Sacred Heart University. She would like to thank her friend and colleague, Mrs. Karyn McManus, for nominating her for this award.

On behalf of the Enfield Teacher of the Year Committee and the entire Enfield Public Schools Family, we would like to congratulate Sheree on this distinction and wish her the best in her future pursuit at the state level.
