Sharon Myrick

Sharon Myrick grew up in the Deep South, trying to figure out why she was not the image of a white southern belle. School was no help in understanding that problem, or any other, until a college professor finally taught her to think. After her doctoral work in the sociology of education, Sharon’s passion became teaching, and over the course of eighteen years she experienced every level of school, preschool through college. Related work experiences, managing community educational programs for thirteen years, revealed how change is possible through an “it takes a village” approach. When not tending her Virginia mountain cabin or engaging in local political concerns, Myrick contributes to the school change movement by listening to current high school students speak about their personal needs and new ways school could help them ( She loves to hear from kindred spirits who want to connect with the national discussion of school transformation
