Lingle, Sharon » ALL ABOUT ME


I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember.  I finally fulfilled that dream upon graduating from the University of Central Oklahoma.  I am beginning my 7th year in education, but my love for watching children learn and grow goes far beyond that.  My "teaching" began in the daycare industry where I spent 20 years working for the same child care facility.  It was through this career I was able to put myself through college and become a certified English Language Arts & Reading teacher.  I spent my first year of teaching in Midland, TX to 8th grade students.  My husband and I (and our son) moved to Red Oak at the end of the school year where we have been ever since.  I spent the last 5 years teaching ELAR for another charter in the area, teaching 3rd-6th graders.  With lots of prayers and soul searching, I found myself here at Life Lancaster and could not be more excited to begin this journey.
I was born and raised in Oklahoma and come from a large, loving family.  I have been married to my husband, Wayne for 11 years and together we have a son, Brady who starts 5th grade this year.  I have a 24 year old daughter, Brittani, who lives in Oklahoma with her son, Rhyder.  Upon graduation, we decided to move to the great state of Texas so that I could pursue my passion for teaching.
I look forward to working with your students.  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have.  I look forward to a wonderful school year!
