Mrs. Charla Altom

I am a two-time graduate of Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama, which is my hometown.  I completed a bachelor's and a master's degree in Elementary Education. I am proud of maintaining a 4.0 in my graduate work.   I am beginning my eighteenth year of teaching.  

This is my fifth year at Sharon, and I have taught in Fulton County, Gwinnett County and in Birmingham, Alabama.  Teaching at Sharon is like a dream come true.  Sharon Elementary is the most amazing place I have taught!

My husband and I have just celebrated our twenty-fifth anniversary.  We have a sixteen-year-old daughter, Carly, who will be a junior at Lambert.  Our family of three lives in Johns Creek.  

In my spare time, I love to read, travel, and spend time at the pool and beach.  My favorite vacation spot is Sanibel Island, where I love to shell!  I enjoy eating out and exploring new restaurants. I am also an avid Auburn fan.

I want your child to experience a kind, loving and caring teacher.  I am flexible, nurturing and very approachable.  I want this to be the best year your child could dream of having.   My classroom has a “family atmosphere” and I know this is one of many reasons we all love Sharon.  This reputation led me to the school, and I could not be happier or prouder to be a part of the Sharon Family!  I cannot wait to get to know you and your child!

Mrs. Robin Curtis

Hi Knights! I am a graduate of the University of North Georgia, and I am so excited to be joining the Sharon family and teaching 3rd grade! I earned my masters degree from Valdosta State University in 2020. I have a passion for making learning fun and challenging students to be the best version of themselves both inside and outside of school! Although I have lived in Georgia for a majority of my life, I will forever be an Auburn girl. War Eagle! My husband and I have two dogs that we love to take to the lake. Outside of school, I love to bake, travel, and spend time with my family. I am looking forward to an exciting and wonderful year in 3rd grade!

Mrs. Robyn Fogarty

I am very excited to be teaching at Sharon Elementary.  This is my 27th year of teaching elementary school in Georgia and New Hampshire!  I am married to my wonderful husband, John, and have four sons; Shane 27, Zachary 26, Ryan 20, and Kyle 14.  I also have three fur babies, two dogs- Roman (boxer) and Chloe (shih tzu) and 1 cat - Little Joe. We are always busy and having fun with the family.  My favorite things to do are reading, hiking, boating, shopping, and watching my boys play sports. Our family loves cheering for the NE Patriots (and all Boston sports teams).

I grew up in Pennsylvania and received my teaching degree at California University of PA.  After college, I moved to GA, where I began my career teaching Kindergarten and first grade.  My family and I moved to NH for two years where I taught second grade, then we moved back to GA for 3 years and I taught 3rd grade.  Our family missed the seasons and beauty of New England, so we moved back to NH for 3 years and I taught a year each in first grade, second grade, and fifth grade.  Even though we absolutely love New Hampshire, we decided to move back (for good!) to be closer to family. We are excited to have made our home in Forsyth County. I am absolutely thrilled to work with you and your child to make their third-grade year a wonderful experience.

Mrs. Cindy Slappy

I am so happy to be at Sharon Elementary, working with the best staff, the best parents, and the best students! I was born and raised in Ohio but moved to Georgia with my family in 1984. After graduating from Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, I began my teaching career in Cobb County. I taught 3rd grade (my favorite!) in the same school, even the same room for 10 years! During that time, I met and married my husband, Jackson. We moved to Jacksonville, Florida and then Charleston, South Carolina. During my 8 years in Florida and South Carolina, I continued teaching as a reading safety-net teacher, kindergarten special education teacher and a science lab instructor. Finally, we made it back to Georgia! I worked again in Cobb County for 2 years as a science lab instructor. My love of science is enormous, and I love to share my lab experiences with the students of Sharon! This will be my eleventh year working in third grade at Sharon and I am excited for my next group of third graders! (Yep, that’s right, 21 years' worth of third graders!)

Last year, my husband and I officially became “empty nesters”. My daughter, Rachel, is in her final year of medical school at Emory University. She is married and she and her husband welcomed a beautiful baby girl in March 2022. This “Cici” is spoiling her first granddaughter and enjoying every minute!! My second daughter, Emily, attends the University of Tennessee (Go Vols!), and is studying interior architecture. My youngest, Ryan, will be in his third year at Emory University (Go Eagles!) in the fall.

Mrs. Amy Stallings

Hi! My name is Amy Stallings and I am so excited to join the Sharon Elementary School family. My family moved to the area in May of 2020 and two of my three children have attended Sharon.  Before moving to Forsyth County I was the Director of a private Preschool for the past six years.  I have also taught 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8thgrades in Cobb County, Gwinnett County, and Alexandria, Virginia.  In total this will be my 13thyear in Education. 

I am a Georgia native and grew up in the Atlanta area.  My husband and I met in college at Georgia College in Milledgeville, where I earned a B.S. in Education.  We have been married 19 years and have a 14 year old son (Jackson), a 12 year old daughter (Charlotte), and a 9 year old son (Garrett).  All three of my children are involved in sports and activities in the South Forsyth area, so I spend a lot of my time going to baseball games, dance performances, and musical events.  Jackson will be attending Lambert HS, Charlotte at South Forsyth MS, and Garrett will continue at Sharon Elementary.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family!  We love to get out and hike, travel, and play with our dog Duke (a German Shorthaired Pointer).  I am looking forward to an amazing school year!

Mrs. Casey Wilson

Welcome to Third Grade! I am thrilled to be at the beginning of another school year! Here is a little background about me: I have wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember. Teaching is what I love to do and it's where my heart is. I love helping students discover a love of learning! It's amazing to see how much growth they make in a year. This school year marks my 17th year of teaching. I spent the first 6 years of my career teaching second grade in Jackson County. This year is my 11th year as a third-grade teacher at Sharon Elementary. I could not be prouder to call myself a Sharon Knight!

I am originally from upstate NY, and went to college in Boston, Massachusetts. While in Boston, I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Human Development. After college, we moved to Georgia, and I later went on to earn a master's degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment. My husband Matt and I have three amazing kids. My stepdaughter Dianna is twenty. Our son, Matthew, is in sixth grade this year at Riverwatch. Our youngest, Shea, is here at Sharon and in third grade! We also have two dogs named Ollie and Penny. Outside of school, I love to spend time with my family, read, watch football (go Giants!), watch baseball (Go Yankees!), cook, and bake.

I cannot wait to meet my new group of third graders. I know it's going to be a fantastic year!
