Mark of Excellence
Dr. Sharon Slater
11th Grade Administrator, 2020-2021 Academic Year
I always knew I wanted to be an educator. As a young girl, I would line my dolls up across my bed and pretend to be their teacher. I valued education and wanted to be a part of a career that touches the future.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in English Education from Jackson State University. I, then, attended the University of Notre Dame for a Masters in English Literature. Later, I completed my doctorate (Ph.D.) from JSU in Educational Administration. I have more than 30 years as an educator. I started my career as a teacher at Palm Harbor Middle School in Pinellas County, FL. I returned to MS and taught in the Jackson Public Schools District. I also had the privilege to serve as a principal of Humphreys County and McComb High Schools.
I have lived in Madison County for nearly 20 years and each of my 4 children are graduates of the Madison County School District.
I am honored to serve at Ridgeland High School as an assistant principal.
I love my Titan family.
