Mrs. Sheila Senkirik

It is my privilege to be a member of the Brownwood High School staff, and I am also proud to say that I am a graduate of BHS. Once a lion, always a lion! I spent 20 years teaching high school English and have been a counselor at BHS since 2012. I treasure my teaching years but equally love my role as counselor. I love that I can help my students in their daily life while also guiding them with their future plans beyond high school. I had a teacher at BHS, Mrs. Guy Nell West, and without her caring enough to inquire about my future plans, I may never have made it to the steps of Howard Payne University. It is there that I found another kind person, Glenda Huff, who helped me find resources, so that I could attend HPU and graduate four years later. I hope that I can encourage and inspire others, just as these two ladies did for me.

My husband of 35 years, Bryan, is retired military. We have two amazing children who also graduated from BHS. I am proud to say that due to their involvement and academics at Brownwood High School, that both received scholarships that helped pave their way to college. Our son, Jake and his wife, Alexis both graduated from Tarleton State University and are also BISD educators; our daughter, Jordyn, is a graduate of Texas A&M University and is currently working for their Association of Former Students. We are a family that loves spending time together, which includes raising cattle and pigs, attending stock shows throughout Texas, and spending time snow skiing in Colorado.
