NAME: Mrs. April Sharp

CLASS: 6th Grade Math
SCHOOL PHONE: 281-357-3020 ex:1450
 
I am married to a Houston Firefighter and have two sons, a fourteen-year-old and a twenty-one-year-old. I earned my teaching degree at Sam Houston State University and started my career as a 6th grade teacher in Aldine ISD. This is my thirteenth year at NIS, and I love it. Sixth graders are the best!
 
Being a teacher, mother, and wife keeps me very busy, but in my spare time I like to travel, camp, fish, shop, and read. My favorite color is black, I love the Astros, I can't get enough of Starbucks, and I love anything chocolate.
 
Please feel free to ask me questions about myself and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you as well.
 
Mission For The Class: I want my students to discover the joy of learning and to take responsibility and ownership of their own success.

REMOTE LEARNING

Hello Parents,

I hope you all are doing well with all of the changes that have been taking place recently in our society. I wanted to let you know that we will begin our remote learning on Monday, March 23. I will continue using our same Math Google Classroom to post videos, assignments, and other resources as well as to communicate with your child. Make sure to have your child check their Google Classroom each Monday. This is when I will post weekly assignments. I will continue to update my Edlio page each week.

I have created a quick technology survey for students to complete. This will help me see who has access to various types of technology from home and will help in future planning. This will be posted in Google Classroom on Monday, March 23rd and must be completed no later than Wednesday, March 25th. **Be sure your child is logged into their Tomball ISD Google account** If your child does not have access to a computer/device or internet, please let me know so I can pass this information on to our district leaders. 

I will have office hours to assist your child on Mondays 1:00-1:30 & Thursdays 1:00-1:30.  Students can post questions in Google Classroom for feedback. Parents can reach out to me with any math related questions via email. 

This is certainly going to be a new experience for all of us and we will learn as we go. I will make sure I do everything I can to support your child through this time. 

You are all in my thoughts and I miss my students. I look forward to returning to normal life, but until then, stay healthy and safe.

Thank you for your patience and support.
