NAME: Mrs. April Sharp
SCHOOL: Northpointe Intermediate School
CLASS: 6th Grade Math
SCHOOL PHONE: 281-357-3020 ex:1450
 
I am married to a Houston Firefighter and have two sons, a twelve-year-old and a nineteen-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 eleventh 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.
