About Sharon


Bio

A favorite phrase of mine is that you can take the teacher out of the classroom, but you can't take the classroom out of the teacher. I really believe that sentiment, because after thirty years in the classroom: I still enjoy helping my three grandchildren, ages 8, 6 and 4, in their learning journey.

A favorite phrase of mine is that you can take the teacher out of the classroom, but you can't take the classroom out of the teacher. I really believe that sentiment, because after thirty years in the classroom: I still enjoy helping my three grandchildren, ages 8, 6 and 4, in their learning journey.

While I began as a middle and high school social studies teacher, I extended my education by becoming certified in elementary education. No matter what I taught, no matter the age group--it was a great experience. From reading with fourth graders; science with eighth graders; or American History with eleventh graders--every day was something to look forward to.

I taught language arts for a total of ten years for students from grades four through eight. For the last two years, I've been editing a series of books being written by a beginning author. I love to read and share that love.

I like elementary students. They are each unique, have so much to offer to those who will listen, and if they believe you care about them there is no end to how hard they'll try. You can make a difference in their life; they'll definitely make one in yours.

Students don't always enjoy history. When teaching fifth grade in a rural Virginia county, I started the year by asking my students to ask their parents, grandparents and extended family what they might know about their family's history. Obviously, not all were successful, but the excitement created was so contagious, the project became a part of every succeeding class. And the year a student brought in his family tree with proof his ancestor came over on the Mayflower. I still get giddy just remembering!

Please feel free to reach out to me. I 'll work with you, and try to help you in all ways possible. I want you to be successful. Let me hear from you, so we can get started. I'm ready.

Sharon is everything we could ask for in a tutor. M has improved in school. Her confidence is soaring and we could not be happier. We have noticed the changes and so has her school. She works hard and we know that is a direct result of Sharon's influence. She is the best.
