I am excited to be returning to the team of amazing Administrators at Capitol Hill! My role is primarily that of Administrator for grades 1-5th, but I am also involved with grades 6-8.
A little bit about my background... I have just completed my 26 years in St. Paul Public Schools. Prior to joining the Capitol Hill team, I spent the past 8 years as principal of Cherokee Heights on the West side. Before that I was a classroom teacher for 18 years in grades 5 and 6 at Highwood Hills Elementary. I received my two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Elementary Education and English Literature from Bethel University, my Masters of Education from the University of Minnesota, and my Administrative License from Hamline University.
I have two children, Connor (23 years old), and Hannah, (age 19). My son (who went to Capitol Hill for his 6-8th grades) got married Thanksgiving of 2014. He and his new wife are a part an organization called Youth With A Mission. They both have been studying and training in Hawaii in order to travel to other countries in Asia to teach English, organize youth camps, and help with whatever the needs of the community are. They have served people in: Cambodia, Thailand, Bangladesh, India and the Phillipines.
Hannah just finished her freshman year in college in Brooklyn, NY at Pratt Institute of Design.
Some other interests of mine include: walking my two naughty dogs, (Shadow and Snoopy), bike riding, photography, reading, baking, discovering new ways to help students learn, Pinteresting ideas for home improvement projects, and hanging out with friends.
I have high goals and expectations for myself and students. I am always available by email (Sharon.Hendrix@spps.org). Please feel free to contact me.
