About Me

Educational History:

I graduated from Midland High School. I recieved my AA in Early Childhood from ASU Beebe.  I recieved my BPS from Arkansas Tech University in Early Childhood.  

Degrees and Certifications:

I am a trained Dylexia Therapist through the APPLE Group in Jonesboro. I use their reading program Connections: OG in 3D.

Professional Development:

I have been through the Connections training twice. I am trained in the Phonics First reading program as well as completed the training in Structures, an extension for older students. I have also been trained in the Fairview Reading program to work with deaf students in our district.

I am part of a Dyslexia Cadre so that I can keep our school informed of the latest information available for other districts as well as the ADE. I attend annual Conferences to gather new ideas and techniques to help each individual student so that they can acquire academic success. 

Current Position:

I have been hired for the Midland School District as their K-12 Dyslexia Therapist. What this entails is that the district and I will work together to help struggling students be better able to overcome any obstacles they may have in learning! I will provide therapy to any child who fails the dyslexia screener Nd exhibits markers for dyslexia.  This intervention is not intended to be a diagnosis, only a tool to seek out any holes and gaps in your child's education and help to fill those holes. It is an exciting time for our Midland Students! 

 

Previous Position:

I worked for Midland School District for 2 years as a substitute teacher. I was then hired as a teacher's aide for Midland Preschool. I was employed there for 16 years as an aide and then later on as a lead teacher. It was a rewarding and  fulfilling experience. I will be forever grateful for the opportunity! 

Family Information:

I have been married to Ronnie Sharp since October 1987. We have 3 children: Dustin Sharp and his wife Heidi; Emily Darnell and her husband Adam; and Joshua Sharp. They are all grown and are doing a great job of paving their own way in life! I LOVE being a GRANDMOTHER! I have 5 grandchildren. Heath, Angel, Josiah, Olivia, and Zoe. They are my world! 

Personal Information:

There are several things I love to do! Some of my favorites are: Going to the beach; looking at antiques; and most of all spending time with my family and friends! I have worked several years learning sign language and will occasionally enjoy signing a song at church.
