Sheena Graham

Warren Harding High School, Bridgeport Public Schools

Sheena Graham is a product of the Ansonia, Connecticut Public Schools system, Western Connecticut State University, St. Joseph’s University and Southern Connecticut State University.  She believes that the greatest contribution we can give youth today is the opportunity to discover their passion, develop their voice, create community connections, and see that they have the power to impact others positively.

Education, music, and writing are Sheena’s passion. Her original pieces have been performed at the Westport Playhouse in CT, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the White House twice. After almost four decades she retired from teaching performing arts in January of 2022. 

Honors received during her tenure were the Beard Excellence in Teaching Award, the Phi Delta Kappa Educator’s Golden Apple Award, and Teacher of the Year Awards from the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women, the NAACP, and Bridgeport, CT.  Being chosen as the 2019 CT Teacher of the Year was one of the high points of her career.

Currently in addition to the Teachers of Connecticut Advisory Board, she serves on the WPKN African American Community Board, the Connecticut Teacher of the Year Council, the Greater Bridgeport Retired Teachers Fund Board, and volunteers at the AGAPE food pantry in Stratford, CT.
