The Learning Center! Charter School welcomes new school board member, Anna Ramirez Sharp for the 2016-2017 school year. Sharp has been elected to a three-year term on the Board of Directors of The Learning Center! Charter School in Murphy.
Sharp and her husband, Bob, moved to Murphy in 2008 after working more than 30 years as an educator and educational consultant in Texas. She is bilingual and her professional experiences include serving as an instructional specialist in special education, assistant elementary principal, a facilitator for staff development, instructional intern, personnel recruiter, educational diagnostician, early childhood special education teacher and speech therapist.
Sharp earned a bachelor of science degree in elementary education from Pan American University in Edinburg, Texas and a master of science from Texas A & M
University in Kingsville, Texas. She also holds professional certifications in mid-management, speech-language pathology, early childhood education-handicapped, language and/or learning disabilities, mentally retarded, educational diagnostician and kindergarten.
Sharp and her husband are volunteers for Big Brothers Big Sisters organization of Cherokee County and other community activities in and around Murphy.
“We welcome our newest highly motivated and credentialed community servant to our school board,” said board chairwoman, Cecilia Crawford. “Without the Board’s support and time volunteering to our school, we would not be able to have the exceptional instructional program that we have today.”
The Learning Center! is a tuition-free public charter school that operates independently from the local school district. The school itself is considered a school district and thus reports to a board of directors much the same way that traditional public schools work with and report to their boards. In addition, charter school’s accept students across county lines.
