COMMENTS FROM THE NOMINATION FORMS:
"Mrs. Sharp works very hard teaching grades K through 12 everyday and literally runs from one end of the building to the other throughout the day. Her dedication to each student, as well as many extracurricular duties is inspirational."
"She is patient, kind, knowledgeable, and always willing to go the extra mile for any student."
"She puts on two band concerts a year and a pops concert. She is truly one of the best teachers I have ever met. She takes time to help each child and truly enjoys teaching."
"She is an inspiration to me because she taught me how to open up and sing from my heart. She always told me that I'm a good singer, that it doesn't matter what people think or say. She always told me to follow my dreams and not to let people talk me out of following my dreams. She taught me to follow where my heart takes me."
"She never gave up on us when some of us gave up on ourselves.."
"She does an awesome job of helping kids learn about music and how to play instruments. She is patient when you don't get it right the first time and will work with you until you get it right."
"She leads the high school pep band at basketball games, guided the marching band to a 1st place finish in competition, designs field shows for the Jackson band festival, and directs various concerts throughout the year. Show Mrs. Sharp how much she means to us and how much we appreciate her by naming her one of the Heartland's Best Teachers."
"She is the reason any of us really wanted to play in the band."
"She shows us how to read music notes and she makes it really fun."
"If you could have seen her Christmas musical last year you would nominate her also. This production should have been televised. Greatest production I have ever seen. She has the respect of all students, teachers, and parents."
