Sheldon Gerau:  

I am John & Stacy Gerau's third son, and I have been apart of the program my whole life. I attended PHLC for my entire pre-school and elementary years.  I have a degree from the University of Missouri. My major is in Early Childhood Development and my plans are to work for many years with children, following in my parents footsteps.   I have joined partners with my mother and will be under her mentoring for the next few years.  In my free time I enjoy spending time with  my friends  and family.  I love to go to the lake and hunt and fish.  It has been a joy working with young children and I look forward to serving the children of Columbia, Missouri in my future.
