My name is Anna Sharp. I am very excited that I will be the Elementary Principal for the 2017-2018 school year. I am looking forward to getting to know each of you and for the opportunity to work with your child. I firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of our students. Research and experience show us that a parent’s/guardian’s involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school. To maximize your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:
- Ensure that your child is at school on time each day.
- Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events.
- Monitor your child’s homework daily.
- Expect and support positive behavior at school.
- Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily.
With that being said, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I attended Stephen F. Austin State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (1997), a Master of Arts in School Counseling (2001), and received my Principal Certification through Region IV Education Service Center in 2015. I have lived in San Augustine all of my life, graduating SAHS in 1981. I married John F. Sharp in 1984 and we have 3 beautiful daughters, Jami, Casi, and Jodi. I am also blessed with 4 precious grandchildren, Lynnley, Aniston, Aubrey, Jace and with grandchild number 5 due in January. I love animals, the outdoors, and any kind of adventure. My favorite sports are football (go Cowboys), NASCAR and rodeo.
I have a passion to help young people reach their potential academically, emotionally and socially. We at SAES are here to insure that the foundation is built for the success and happiness of all of our students.
Looking forward to a great year,
