Our Principals are dedicated leaders, and we’ll be introducing you over the coming days to Principals who are new to the role or who are serving at new schools this year. Please help us celebrate Todd Sharrock, who this school year will begin leading E.T. Booth Middle School!
Todd Sharrock soared onto the radar of CCSD leaders for his success in teaching science and helping propel Creekview High School students to national and international aeronautics championships.
The 22-year educator’s expertise and excitement for all things STEM will be put to excellent use as the new Principal at E.T. Booth Middle School, where students and teachers are eager to do more in the field.
“I’m most looking forward to the opportunity to develop positive interactions with my stakeholders and to work with my team to create an environment of learning for our students where they know they are valued,” said Principal Sharrock, who most recently served as assistant principal at Woodstock High School, where he oversaw its successful State STEM Certification bid and where he earned a nomination for the Georgia Assistant Principal of the Year award.
Prior to joining CCSD in 2008, Principal Sharrock held administrative and faculty positions at Young Harris College and North Georgia Technical College and taught middle school in Union County. As a teacher at Creekview HS, he earned Teacher of the Year, Golden Apple and Outstanding Teacher Award honors.
“I want every student who comes through our doors to not only be prepared academically for the road ahead, but to also be equipped with the social and emotional tools they need in order to be successful,” said Principal Sharrock, who earned his bachelor’s degree in pre-medicine and master’s degree in science education, both from North Georgia College & State University, followed by his education specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial University.
Education is a family business for Principal Sharrock, as he’s the son of two retired educators and both his brother and sister-in-law teach in CCSD. His wife, Lindsay, is the preschool program director at World of Gymnastics in Woodstock, and their daughter is a sophomore at Creekview HS.
“Principal Sharrock hits the target for what we needed in our next leader for E.T. Booth Middle School,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “He’s an excellent teacher of both students and fellow educators, with a deep knowledge and appreciation of the STEM field, and he’s a coaching leader, who knows how to support and inspire a team to greatness. We know he will aim high and succeed.”
How can parents be more involved? “I would love to see parents communicate with us as much as possible throughout the school year and to be present at as many events as they can,” Principal Sharrock said. “Educating young minds is a group effort, and our parents play an irreplaceable role in this effort!”
