Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jessica Sharkey. I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade at Hillsdale Elementary this year. Although I have worked with children for years in other capacities, this will be my second year teaching in the classroom, and I am loving it. I am looking forward to another great year!
I grew up in Meridian, Idaho, and graduated from Eagle High School. I went to college in Missouri, which is where I met my wonderful husband. Together, we have lived in Missouri, McCall, Indiana, and back to Meridian, Idaho in 2011. After college, I ran programs for children for several years, while keeping up with my teacher certification and growing my family. I have three amazing children who also attend Hillsdale Elementary. After my youngest started school, I was able to fulfil my dream of working in the school system, first as a paraprofessional, and then as a teacher.
