Mrs. Sharon Edwards
Welcome to my teacher page! I am a native of Onslow County. My husband, Doug and I have been married for 38 wonderful years and together we have one son, named Ethan and a daughter-in-law, Nicole. Ethan & Nicole have a Boston Terrier named Bentley. We often dog-sit for Bentley.
My passion is teaching! I strive daily to be the best that I can be and live life to the fullest. As for the students that I teach, I want to be an inspiration and provide them with effective, meaningful instruction, so that they may become independent lifelong learners. I set high expectations for all students and ask that my students give me their very best effort each and every day.
A large portion of my time is spent on school work because I feel that is my true calling. In my spare time, I love to read, work in my flower garden, and spend time with my family, as well as devote time to my church.
My educational career has centered on working with students in our county in a variety of grade levels that range from kindergarten, first, second, third and fifth. More than twelve years of my career was dedicated solely to third grade.
Through the years, I have focused my teaching on each individual child and his/her educational needs by implementing strategies to help the child achieve his/her highest potential. It is of the upmost importance to recognize the uniqueness of each individual child, identify his/her strengths in order to provide a challenge, while also nurturing any academic area(s) of concern. Today’s society offers a diverse population, as teachers, we must recognize multicultural differences in order to encourage the child to achieve his/her highest potential.
