Teacher Spotlight: Mr. Sharp, English Subject Expert Teacher

Mr. Sharp knew he wanted to become a teacher because, “I love working with kids who have their lives in front of them.” 

Mr. Sharp teaches 4th, 5th and 6th grade English this year at BASIS Independent McLean.  He previously taught High School English in Arlington.  He is also the faculty sponsor for the Model United Nations Club for middle and high school students.  He is a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana and attended Wabash College, where he majored in English.
