My name is Sharon Jones-Tyler and I have been teaching for 23 years, 11 of those years have been at Morrow Elementary School. I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. I graduated from Molloy College with a Bachelors Degree in Public Relations and communications, I also went to Adelphi Unversity twice! The first time I received a Masters Degree in Elementary Education, and the second time I graduated with a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration and Technology. I have served in many different educational roles such as Grade level chair, English Language Arts Department Lead, and Director of Curriculum. I love teaching and learning. My favorite subject is reading, and my favorite color is purple.
I have two wonderful children. They are 12. If you haven't guessed they are twins. One is a boy and one is a girl they are in 7th grade. I enjoy spending time with them. We like to travel and when we aren't traveling we like going to Six Flags and White Water. I also enjoy talking to my sister who still lives in NY. Sometimes I get homesick and miss NY. My son plays football, and my daughter enjoys dancing. They both play instruments and are in the band at school. I also enjoy scouting. I have been a Girl Scout for over 20 years and am a Troop Leader. Both my children participate in Scouts and really enjoy it.
Even though I have taught for 23 years, I am new to Fifth Grade. This is only my second year teaching it, so sometimes I get nervous. One thing I know is that school can be so much fun especially if you open up your mind to listen and learn.
