Sharon Eckert has devoted her teaching career of 35 years to the education of primary students. She has taught kindergarten through third grade. However, second grade was her favorite, and she chose to teach at that level for 30 years.
During her years of service in School District 89 in Glen Ellyn, IL, Eckert has served on district curriculum committees in language arts, math, and social studies; district committees for report cards, textbook adoptions, and teacher-in-service; and numerous building committees. Her interest in photography has led her to record various events and social functions throughout the district. Eckert earned her bachelor's degree in education and master's degree in education from Illinois State University.
