Through her curriculum, Sheffey has authored several books to aid teachers, including, “The C-A-R-E Project: Conflict and Responsibility Education,” a guide to conflict resolution and character building education; “Junior Entrepreneur in the Urban School,” which teaches children in urban schools and communities how to start and run a successful small business; and her newest book, which will be coming out soon, ”Behavior Management in the Urban Classroom,” which provides teachers with a guide on how to address violence in the classroom, while considering the student’s environment out of school.

Along with her upcoming book, Sheffey said she is working on a project that will focus on the cultural learning styles of urban students, and provide teachers with tips on how to work with them and show how urban students learn as a culture.

Sheffey’s work has been recognized several times. She is a recipient of the Benjamin S. Carson Outstanding Academic Achievement Award, a 2009 recipient of the New Pittsburgh Courier’s 50 Women of Excellence Award and the 2009 recipient of Carlow University’s Adjunct Teacher Award for Excellence.
