My name is Ms. Sharon Rush.  I have one daughter who recently graduated from the University of Alabama, with a degree in Public Relations, Communications Studies, and Computer Science.  She is currently working on her MBA degree at the University of North Alabama.  I enjoy traveling, attending special events and festivals, planting flowers, and reading.

I love teaching at Julian Newman and Athens Elementary.  It is a joy to teach such talented students.
