Sheila M. Krotz is a clinical faculty member at California State University San Bernardino, a consultant for the San Bernardino County Office of Education on Linked Learning supporting five school districts in that County, and the Medical Pathway Coordinator for San Ysidro High School.

As a nurse, she started the Medical Pathway concept 20 years ago in Illinois. Upon moving to California 17 years ago and serving as an administrator, she returned to her passion for teaching and found her niche in the impoverished community of San Ysidro. Predicting the need for bilingual health care workers, she utilized her background to develop the Medical Pathway in San Ysidro. She received the 2011 San Diego Science Alliance County Teacher of the Year award for her work in building community partnerships. She was awarded the San Ysidro Inspirational Teacher of the Year in 2006, 2011, 2012 and 2013. The San Diego County Childhood Obesity Initiative recognized her as a Community Partner for her work with students in the prevention of obesity. Her Medical Pathway program won the Classroom of the Future $10,000 Impact Award in 2012. Most recently, her application for the NASSP Breakthrough Schools won an award and she was honored in Washington, D.C. in 2013.

In addition to her work in San Ysidro, CSU San Bernardino and the San Bernardino County Office of Education, Ms. Krotz has made time to continue her post-graduate work in science, studying Forensics at Purdue and Microbiology at Harvard. She has also served as a member of the American Council of Education GED Testing Committee, Washington, D. C.

Ms. Krotz regularly serves as a consultant in the area of Linked Learning and the federal Next Generation Science Standards as she pursues her Doctoral degree from San Diego State University. She is slated to present at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in November 2013 and NASSP in 2014.
