Legend Springs Elementary
Changing lives and taking names. My family has had the privilege of knowing Mrs. Levake when our oldest son, Brody was placed in her 1st grade class. Brody is now 15 and Sharon is still at the center of his life and ours. The moment we met her, not only was she warm and welcoming, she drew Brody out of his shell and so much of the man he is today can be attributed to her. Everyone who meets Sharon can see her beauty and feel her warmth. I knew immediately that she was a Mom. As a new Mom myself, trying to help my child succeed and find his place, Sharon was not just a welcoming teacher to her students, she was to every parent as well. Sharon takes the time to understand the value of each student and goes out of her way to ensure they are heard and understood. Each one her students was greeted with a smile, a handshake or high five to begin and end the day. Her classroom felt more like a living room; a place where everyone feels safe and open and honest conversations are had. I know the old saying goes, “everything you need to know, you learned in Kindergarten,” but I truly believe life lessons started in 1st grade with Mrs. Sharon Levake and if we had more Mrs. Levake’s the world would truly be a better place.
