Traip School Nurse


R.W. Traip School Nurse


Hello! My name is Sharon Stathoplos though most students call me ‘Nurse Shay’. I have been a registered nurse since 1984 and obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from St. Joseph’s College. For years I had been Nationally Certified as a Mental Health/Psychiatric Nurse and currently hold a National Certification in School Nursing. 
My professional affiliations include the National Association of School Nurses, the Maine Association of School Nurses, and the nursing honor society Sigma Theta Tau.
Prior to being the school nurse for the Horace Mitchell School and the Nurse Leader for the Kittery School Department since 2012 I worked with adolescents in an alternative school setting for over to 20 years. 

My goal is to help students remain in school by helping them remain healthy and to adapt to whatever internal or external health issue that might be getting in the way of their education.  

Adolescence is a time that can be fraught with much physical, social, and emotional growth and it occurs at a rapid rate. My goal is to help students make choices that will promote their health and wellness for years to come so they can reach their optimal level of independence.


Thank you for letting me care for your child!
