After many years of being a devoted, enthusiastic and compassionate Spanish teacher of several levels, World Language Department Chair, Sharon Kleiman retired over the summer and did not return for the 2016-2017 school year.

Kleiman made each lesson exciting and interactive. She filled each class period with several activities for students to complete and learn. Her high expectations for her students encouraged them to succeed and try their best.

To many students, she was a caring and enthusiastic teacher who was excited about learning and always offered extra help to those who needed it.

“She was always such a good listener and was willing to give up all of her lunch to help kids understand,” junior Kate Ellynn said.
