About Sharon

Hello! I am a retired special education teacher in elementary grades K-6. I have taught reading, math, phonics, grammar, science, social studies, writing, and social skills. I am comfortable teaching at any of the grade levels K-6. My love of children and love of learning helped me to become a great teacher. I believe in having lesson plans, but some of my greatest teaching moments was spur of the moment when there was a teachable moment about something that the students brought up, or a current event.
I have also provided tutoring after school to some students who just needed some extra individual to small group help. This is where so much progress can be made, and where students are not afraid to open up, ask questions and have those aha moments. I provide a risk free environment where they can make mistakes and learn from them. We are here to practice, not be perfect.



I am comfortable teaching the "old math", the "new math" and any math in between.

I am very confident with correct grammar, it is almost a pet peeve when it is not used correctly.

Spelling is such an important part of writing, and phonics is a basis for spelling so we will make sure that the phonics/spelling rules are learned.

I am excited to meet you and help you achieve and progress in school. We will work together but try to have fun also to make learning meaningful.
