Wakulla School District Superintendent Bobby Pearce recently announced two new leadership positions for the 2018-2019 school year.
Krista Sharin will take over district-wide testing and federal programs such as Title I when Director of Special Programs and Assessment Sue Anderson retires later this summer.
Sharin will start as Dean of Special Programs and Assessment for the upcoming school year.
Says Anderson, “Krista brings a wealth of experience to this position and has been working with me for the past few months. She is smart, organized, and has a good rapport with our school administrators already.”
Sharin taught high school English for two years in Sarasota, then moved back to Wakulla to teach English for another two years at her alma mater Wakulla High School. She also attended Wakulla Middle School.
She was then named to the position of WHS Guidance Counselor and earned an additional degree in Guidance and Counseling where she served the students of Wakulla High for 9 years. This job included acting as the WHS Testing Coordinator.
Sharin then was hired at Riversprings Middle School where she was named Associate Dean of Student Services, which involved guidance counseling issues, as well as RMS Testing Coordinator responsibilities.
Bethany Evans Pafford will take 8 years of experience working at middle, high school, and elementary levels to her new job as Associate Dean of Student Services at Riversprings Middle School.
Pafford is a Wakulla native who attended Sopchoppy Pre-K, Sopchoppy Elementary, which moved to become the new Medart Elementary School, and Wakulla Middle School. She graduated from Wakulla High School.
Pafford began her career at Wakulla Middle School, teaching math and science for 4 years.
She then moved to Wakulla High School as a math teacher for 3 years. In addition, she coached Cheerleading and was the Student Government sponsor, giving her leadership experience outside of the classroom.
Last school year, she worked as a 5th grade teacher at Medart Elementary School, giving her the unique perspective of having worked at all three levels of elementary, middle, and high school.
Says Superintendent Bobby Pearce, “These two educators have already proven themselves to be advocates for students and mature leaders in their fields. They are great additions as we prepare for the 2018-2019 school year.”
