The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Welcome Students!

Welcome Parents and Students! It's a great day to learn science here at Shades Valley High School! I am most certain that all of my students this year are ready to put those science hats on and learn new things about nature, life, our very existence, and everything around us! Im super excited!!!!!!!!!! 
picMy name is Sharleko M. Garner and I am so excited to be entering my third year at Shades Valley High School! I am a recent graduate of Auburn University Montgomery where I studied Biology and Education. Growing up in a small town where educational resources were limited, it wasn't until I attended school at AUM that I realized my love for science and investigating the natural world around us. My goal as a teacher is to take those students like myself, and instill a passion for learning in them that will urge them to seek higher education, ultimately leading to a very promising career. Since coming to Shades Valley High School, I have met some very wonderful people! My colleagues and I share a common goal, and that is to make a positive impact in the lives of those we teach. I am also involved in other organizations here on campus such as Science ACT Prep Club, Pearls Organization, and SVHS Varsity Cheerleading. Being a former cheerleader, I know the importance of helping my amazing group of girls promote school spirit and ultimately make this school a fun and encouraging place for all students. Im looking forward to the new school year full of learning and maximizing our students' potential. Have a great year! GO MOUNTIES:)
