My name is Colleen Sheriff. This is my fifth year teaching at Brooks Museums Magnet Elementary. I grew up in Urbandale, Iowa where my family still lives, graduated from Central College in Pella, Iowa with my Elementary Education degree and endorsements in Reading and Early Childhood, taught kindergarten and first grades over the course of five years in Newton, Iowa, and completed my Educational Administration degree from Iowa State University. In my spare time, I enjoy walking and working puzzles.
My name is Sharon Ravenscraft. The kids call me "Ms. R." This is my fourth year at Brooks. I am the proud mom of two boys, John and Owen, and a dog named Lucy. I have lived in Raleigh my entire life, except during my college years at Wake Forest University. In my spare time, I love to watch soccer and spend time with my extended family, who all live in Raleigh.
