Ms. Sharir’s Biography
It has been an interesting journey for me to reach this year. I began as a stay-at-home mom of three children then decided to go back to college for my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. When my youngest child when to kindergarten, I began teaching for ELANCO School District at Summit Valley Elementary School. There I taught 6th and 5th grades for 10 years before moving to Blue Ball for 3 years.
As my children grew up and left home, I decided I wanted to work with older students so I went back to college to get my degree in English. Although I originally applied to the high school for an English position, I was offered the gifted support teacher job and accepted. That was more than 11 years ago and I haven’t looked back since! In fact, I got my Masters in Gifted Education from Millersville University.
I am now working with the middle school gifted students also and thoroughly enjoying it.
When I’m not at school what do I like to do?
- visit my children who live all over the country
- write creative stories
- weave on a loom, spin yarn on a spinning wheel, and knit
- did I mention reading?
- science fiction
- historical novels
- fiction as well as non-fiction
- practically anything with words in print!
