Welcome to Ms. Sharkey’s fourth grade! I am excited to be teaching fourth grade again this year! My educational background includes teaching certificates in Elementary and Early Childhood and a Reading Specialist certificate. I have a Masters Degree as well. I have been teaching since the 1986-1987 school year. In the past I have taught fourth, first and second grade homerooms. I have taught Language Arts in grade seven and Basic Skills in grades 3, 4 and 5. In addition, I implemented the Reading Recovery Program for Dennis Township and taught this highly specialized reading program to first grade students on an individual basis.
Here is a little about me. I have one daughter who is attending college in California. I enjoy traveling, jogging, reading, relaxing on the beach and I love chocolate and coffee!
I believe learning is a lifelong process and I hope to instill a love of learning in your children. Education is a partnership of students, teachers and parents working together to help each child reach their potential. I foster a classroom that includes kindness and teamwork. I look forward to a wonderful school year teaching your children.
