After many years working at Apple - most recently as Ipod Operations Director, Sandra Sharp, decided to make a career change that would be more personally rewarding. She received her Mathematics teaching credential in 2009 and worked at a high school in San Francisco prior to joining JobTrain in 2011.
As a youth GED instructor at JobTrain, Sandra is very focused on creating a learning environment that is welcoming and supportive of each student’s needs. As a result of this individualized instruction and encouragement the graduation rate has accelerated, with 10 youth completing their GED in the last six months ending in December!
Currently student LaSaundra Brown said, "I've had many struggles with math in the past. Sandra has been ready and willing to help me on a moment's notice. I've never had such help before. Earning my GED will bring a sense of pride and a belief that I can do anything!"
