Sharon Underwood

Principal

I was raised in a small town in Illinois and knew I wanted to be a teacher since second grade.  I began babysitting at the age of eleven to save for college.  I took a certified nursing class in high school when I was fifteen then began working in the local nursing home.  I left for college at the age of seventeen and continued working at hospitals and nursing homes during the midnight shift until I graduated in 1996.  I have experience in the nursing field and actually have held a human heart in my hand.  I received my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood & elementary from Missouri Baptist University, My Masters in administration from Lindenwood University and I am currently in the final stages of completing my Dissertation for my Doctoral degree in Curriculum and Instructional technology from Evangel University.  I am honored and blessed to be going into my 6th year serving as the Principal for Ozark West Elementary.
