My husband Jason and I have three children: Owen is in 2nd  grade, Allison is in 1st, and Ethan is 4 years old.

I have my Bachelor's degree in Education from Oklahoma State University and taught middle school Language Arts for six years until I left to stay home with our son. I am currently a freelance writer and the staff Grant Writer for Georgia Transplant Foundation. This year I served as the Cultural Night co-chair and a classroom mom.

Ella is a 5th grader (yes, this will be an emotional year for me!) along with Avery in 3rd. We also have a 1 year old cream golden retriever named JoJo that we adore. We joined the Sharon community in the summer of 2019 and couldn’t be happier with our decision. We have been extremely grateful for the hard work, dedication and love provided by all the staff at Sharon.

I have given of my time helping with the spring formal event the last two years, room mom duties, and the Sharon Robo Knights Robotics team. I also assist teaching PreK at Johns Creek Baptist Church and as a therapist at a hotel resort spa.  As a family we enjoy attending our church, visiting state and National Parks, theme parks, attending our kids’ activities such as soccer, flag football, robotics and spending time with friends and family.

We are a new Sharon family- my daughter, Birdie, is in 1st grade this year, and our other daughter, Bennett, is 4 and in preschool. We have loved our short time at Sharon, and feel so lucky to be part of this community. I can already tell it is a special place! I love helping people feel connected, and have already really enjoyed helping parents find a place to volunteer at the school.

My name is Shauna Brown and my husband and I have 2 kids. Our oldest is a 3rd grader at Sharon, and youngest will be starting preschool. We’re new to the Sharon family, but not new to the community. We’ve lived in this area, nearly our entire life. I’ve been room mom for numerous years and absolutely love volunteering in the classroom.

I graduated from Georgia State and worked in marketing and start-ups, until I left my job to stay home with my kids. We love to be outside and when we’re not, we’re usually at dance. I love to be involved in all aspects of my children’s schools and can’t wait for an awesome year!

  

 

Carly Brown, VP Student/Family Events
 
 

My name is Carly Brown and I am excited to be serving on the PTO board.  I have a great appreciation for our entire Sharon staff and a passion for connecting student families to memorable experiences at school, so I am grateful for the opportunity to volunteer.  I graduated from the University of West Georgia with a degree in Early Education and taught elementary school for Fulton County as well as PreK at JCUMC. I love being involved in the school with my two girls, McKinley (3rd Grade) and Millie (Kindergarten) and nurturing their passion for learning. 

 

My husband and I grew up here and are committed to contributing to our wonderful community.  We feel blessed to be a part of such a wonderful school. Outside of school hours we enjoy exploring local parks, coaching our girls in swimming and lacrosse, and being together with friends and family. 

 

Colleen Hight, VP Communications
 
 
We chose our home 16 years ago for the schools, and have had nothing but amazing teachers since our 3rd & 5th grader started at Sharon. I have had a number of different roles on PTO in the past (and I'm so glad I gave it a try!), and I love volunteering at Sharon and at our church. My husband Rob & I are both proud yellow jackets from Georgia Tech. He's a "hell of an engineer," and I run a boutique photography studio in Suwanee. Our family loves taking trips, cheering on our kids' sports games, roller coasters, game nights, Mario, and our sweet, slightly mischievous Beagle rescue.
