Mrs. Jessica Sharp
Welcome Nance Families to another exciting year of learning! We will begin this year differently but will still remain Nance Strong.
My name is Jessica Sharp and I have lived in St. Louis for most of my life. I was educated in the St. Louis Public Schools and I graduated from Gateway Institute of Technology. Go Jaguars! I continued my education at University of Missouri-St. Louis, and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Being so deeply rooted in St. Louis and SLPS, I was eager as well as honored to join the district nearly 10 years ago. I’ve been a part of the Nance community for going on 9 years now and the teachers, students, and parents truly feel like family! It has been a privilege to have taught kindergarten for 6 years, first grade for 2 years, and Supplemental Instructional Teacher/ELA Coach for one year. I’m excited to continue in the ELA Coach position again this year.
My vision for this school year (2020-21) is to empower students to believe that they can perform beyond the parameters of their social economic status and excel past any barriers they may face.
Please partner with me to encourage your child to dive into a good book for at least 30 minutes each night. I want you to find new books that can take you places while you are at home. Below are some websites you can go to explore great books!
Please also join us on Microsoft Teams and ClassDoJo to connect with your teacher and the school for virtual learning. Nance Knights are here to change the world!
