Due to her combined experience as a recreational therapist and a professional educator, Sharon has developed a discovery based and hands-on oriented style of teaching that incorporates problem solving skills, logic, and fun. She is passionate about her students’ success and loves more than anything for them to see God’s creativity and order within the study of math.
Sharon has a B.S. in Education with a Math Specialization from Texas A&M University and a M.S. in Therapeutic Recreation from Indiana University. After working in physical rehabilitation, she taught 6th grade for five years, teaching a variety of students from the gifted and talented to those with special needs. She left the classroom to be engaged in the education of her own children, through which she enjoyed subbing at private Christian, Classical Christian University Model, and public schools. For the last 10+ years, Sharon has been a math teacher for individuals as well as small group homeschool students. She serves as a math co-teacher for families attending several different Classical Christian University Model schools in her area and tutors students across the grade spectrum with a myriad of curricula. Sharon has received certification for working with children with unique learning needs and specializes in helping children with dyscalculia.
Sharon enjoys being outdoors in any way that water is involved and can be spotted on her bike, hiking the greenbelt, or playing a mean game of pickleball! She is active in her community, serving at a variety of local philanthropies and her church. Most importantly, she is a wife to her husband and mom to three boys.
