We always got along well, and I thought she was such a great help with many things that were happening in the school. We worked together on our masters project . I found her to be so professional, but so helpful and kind. She was truly a wonderful person! I'm so sorry for your loss.

Sharyn was my first principal during my first years of teaching. I learned so much from her. I would like to offer her family and friends my heartfelt condolences. She showed me that a passion for teaching and a love for children goes beyond any curriculum. She will be missed.
