Virginia Sharpe
I am Mrs. Sharpe and I LOVE Riverside Elementary School!

I was born and raised in Columbia, Tennessee. The schools I attended were McDowell, Whitthorne, and Central High School.

I graduated college from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood.  I have teaching experience in Texas and Tennessee in Pre K, Kindergarten, Pre First, and Second Grade. My biggest reward is teaching young children to read! I have been a classroom teacher and a literacy coach. I will be a reading intervention teacher and provide teacher professional development this year at RES.  What is best for children has to be best for teachers!  It truly works! My passion is literacy---listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Steve Sharpe is my husband and we have two children, Carson and Ella.

My hope is that all children, families, and employees will be excited to come to Riverside everyday and look forward to learning together! If you truly like what you do--you will do it well!

Come visit us and celebrate learning!
