Sharon holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from Ohio State and a Master’s degree in Secondary Science from the University of South Florida. She has significant experience on the “applied side” of science, having worked in several distinguished programs, including SEACamp, the Birch Aquarium (San Diego), the Naturalist Outdoor School and the Center of Science and Industry (Columbus, Ohio). Sharon also designed science curriculum units for gifted students and taught them in the Johns Hopkins talent identification program. She is truly excited by the wonders of science and sharing her knowledge with others. Her hands-on approach has engaged Lee students from the very start, with numerous field trips and on-campus environmentally-sound projects, including the creation and expansion of a student-run campus garden. The garden has become a teaching laboratory for a number of classes, from Early Childhood through Upper School.
