Ms. Sharp

Welcome to our class, scholars! My name is Mrs. Sharp and I am so excited about the opportunity to work with you and your child this year in Kindergarten (KC)!  I strive to create a positive learning environment for your child, one that focuses on his/her academic, emotional, and social skills.  I will meet your child where he/she is right now and create numerous opportunities for growth in all of these areas.  Together, we can work to build a solid foundation for your child! Expect to hear from me about your child’s strengths as well as things your student might need some help with.  I want to make sure that your child is striving to do his/her best at all times!

Before the school year begins, I’d like to tell you a bit about myself.  I grew up in Omaha Nebraska and I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  I hold a specialization in Early Childhood Education.  I then moved to Kansas City and attended UMKC where I received my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  This is my 15th year in Education and I have taught preschool, 2nd grade, and 5th grade.  Most recently, I spent the last 8 years teaching 1st grade. I am married and I have 5 children and am expecting my sixth child next month.

We will be starting the next 2-3 weeks really working on establishing expectations and routines which I think are so important at this level.  I think if these things are in place, then learning is easier for everyone!

Please feel free to reach out and email me or call me on the school line if you have any questions or concerns.  I will also be setting up Class Dojo this week and you can communicate with me through that as well.  Please use the email michelle.bolen@pathwayacademy.net for now until it has been fully switched over to michelle.sharp@pathwayacademy.net.  I’ll let you know when that happens.    

I look forward to a fun and successful year!

Sincerely,

Michelle Sharp
