Hi, my name is Sharon Mertes, and I am the 8th grade science teacher. I have been teaching in Aurora Public Schools for 3 years. Before coming to the Edna and John W. Mosley P-8, I taught 6th and 7th grade science at South Middle School. In my free time, I enjoy reading, watching movies, and spending time with family friends, and my miniature schnauzer Misty. The thing I am most excited about for the 2019-20 school year is getting to know my new students and learning my way around a new school! My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by planning authentic learning experiences that engage and challenge my students. My community needs me to do my job.
