Hello! I’m Alison Sharp. I was born and raised in Upstate New York, and went to college at State University of New York at Potsdam, studying Music and Psychology. After graduation, I worked as a residence counselor with mentally ill adults. That experience led me to decide that I wanted to work with children and young people to provide help earlier. I earned my Specialist Degree in School Psychology from Rochester Institute of Technology in 1998, and began serving several districts, ranging from rural to urban. I moved to North Carolina in 2002.
I am married with two teenage sons. I am beginning my 7th year as a school psychologist with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. For my first two years with the school district I served as a long-term substitute in a variety of places. I have been happily serving the Walkertown Schools and Carver High School for over 4 years now. I enjoy assessment, collaboration and consultation, and being a part of the school community. If you like to speak with me, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 727-8037.
