Mr. Shaun Sharp
Hello, and welcome to US History I+II.
If there is any one way to sum up my approach to teaching, it is a focus on "why". As a child, I went through a phase where everything told to me was met with a response of "why?". When the patient and long-suffering adults around me answered my question, that answer would yet again be met with "why?". This would continue until I was finally satisfied, which could be quite the process. While I've grown out of that particular habit by a few decades, the search of "why" has been and remains the central driving force of my educational experience. As a teacher, it manifests as the goal to ignite interest in my students about their subjects to the point that they themselves wonder why and pursue underlying causes and principles.
I graduated from Boise State University with a BS in Political Science-International Relations Emphasis with an added focus in History. After graduating, I realized my love of explaining those subjects to others and pursued my teaching certification. This is my 6th year as a teacher in Middleton School District and I look forward to continuing to learn about and interact with the community!
