My name is Mrs. Sharon Scott.  I was born on the Eastern Seaboard in Ocean City, New Jersey.   My first job was selling fudge at Laura’s Fudge Shop on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. I really love the ocean, and still miss the opportunity to go to the beach whenever I want to.  These days I get my “beach/ocean fix” by going on cruises (I’m up to #23).  Aside from reading, going to the movies, and traveling, I love spending time with my family.  I have been married for 26 years, and I have three children, two boys and a girl.  My oldest son graduated from Arizona State University, and my second son is now a Senior at ASU.  My daughter is a Senior at Highland High School in Gilbert, Az.


     I went to Cabrini University, which is located in Radnor, Pennsylvania.  I graduated in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science in both Elementary Education and Special Education.  I received my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University in 1995.  I taught a general education 2nd grade class for 3 years in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania before moving to Mesa, Arizona in 1988.  I began teaching for Mesa Public Schools in 1988 at the Parkway School (now Franklin East).  For the next thirteen years I was the MD Primary teacher at Hermosa Vista Elementary.  In 2002, I was lucky enough to be a part of the opening staff for Zaharis Elementary.   I am now excited to be teaching my fifteenth year at Zaharis.  Our principal, Mr. Mike Oliver, and the staff he has chosen are a dynamic group of people.  I am thrilled and honored to count myself among this talented staff. 


As far as teaching goes, that is all I ever wanted to do. 


The short version of my personal philosophy is that all children can learn.  I believe learning is in the reach of every child.  In the MIID classroom little steps are important foundations and every accomplishment should be celebrated.  So let’s spend the year living, loving and learning together in Room 23.
