WELCOME TO THE SHARP SPOT

MEAGAN SHARP

Wife. Mom. Blogger. School questioner. Educational Changemaker. Hopeful future author. Life Adventurer. Other shit I am not aware of yet.

"You're not the boss of me."


Something my middle child says too often but I have recently taken the time to apply to my own life.

While I played the game of school well, I have three boys that have opened my eyes to education being more than ‘school’. In 2020, I made a risky career move - trading my secure and financially steady administrative job for a private school to imagine, create, and design a middle school that looks different from public school. 2022 finds me homeschooling my three children in a pursuit of even more freedom. My learning is not done yet so join me along the way. After all, I have decided no one is the boss of me either. I am discovering my life can be all I ever wanted and more. Follow my page for updates on this adventure - highs, lows, joy, tears, successes, failures...I will share it ALL.
