Welcome!


I've tried to prepare everything you need for a meaningful visit.Teachers, librarians, or administrators will find loads of detailed information. I'm always glad to hear from parents, former students, and other interested individuals. Just click on email and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

I have been very blessed. Who am I? I'm a creator, a visionary, a poet. I approach the world with the eyes of an artist, the ears of a musician, and the soul of a writer. I see rainbows where others see only rain, and possibilities when others see only problems.

I love to write; words flow easily from my fingertips, and my heart beats rapidly with excitement as an idea becomes a reality on the paper in front of me. I'm a learner and a seeker of knowledge, and I try to take my readers along on my journey. I am truly passionate about what I do.

I learned to dream through reading, learned to create dreams through writing, and learned to develop dreamers through teaching. I shall always be a dreamer. Come dream with me.

-Sharon M. Draper
