In 2006, Dr. Sharpe earned her Masters of Arts Degree in Teaching from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. Although she was passionate about working with children, She realized the limitations of her ability to be an agent of change in education due to the constraint of mainly concentrating her focus within the four walls of her classroom. This desire for more influence in improving education propelled her to further her studies and complete her doctorate in organizational leadership with emphasis on school reform. In 2014, she obtained her Doctor of Education Degree from the Argosy University Sarasota.
Dr. Sharpe’s doctoral study was focused on examining the different strategies that leaders have implemented in attempt of educational reform. She evaluated the strategies (policies, resources, teachers’ readiness, methods of implementation and leadership) that have shown to be the most successful in assisting educational reform. It was during her study that she realized the pendulum effect to educational reform.
Presently, Dr. Sharpe is an independent Educational Consultant with Time To Teach Center for Teaching Effectiveness.
