Sharon Holmes

Humanities Teacher

I have been involved in teaching since I was an undergraduate at the University of West Alabama. There, I tutored in the TRIO program—created to increase the college’s retention of first generation and minority students (of which I was both). Seeing the success of my students gave me a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment that convinced me I was meant to be an educator. Not only have I been teaching in Chicago since 2000 on the West and South sides, but I am also a life-long learner—constantly honing and perfecting my skills. One more thing— “Roll, Tide, Roll!”
