Mrs. Sharon Balsor, Special Education Teacher
I am very excited about my first year at CES! After 19 years at Cartersville Middle School, it was time for a new challenge.
Education has always been an important part of my life. I grew up in Flemington, NJ where my father was an elementary school guidance counselor, and my mother worked in the school office. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Communication and Sociology from Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA. I also have a Master's Degree in Literacy from Walden University and a Specialist's Degree in Reading from Nova Southeastern University. I first started working as a substitute teacher and paraprofessional when we lived in St. Mary's, GA. This is now my 21th year working in education.
On the personal side my husband, Leo, works for Clorox. We love to take cruises and travel to new places. My daughters, Rebecca and Charlotte, both graduates of UGA, are living independently and working on pursuing their careers (Rebecca works for Turner Network and Charlotte works for the Department of Veteran Affairs). Since they have left, all my attention now goes to my little Morkie named Harry!
I am pleased to be your child's teacher and am looking forward to a successful year!
