This month RCFC honored a teacher from Rice Elementary School in Wellington, Sharilyn Zerbst.  This five year veteran at Rice is a specialist in intervention for gifted and talented students and also for disadvantaged students, such as those suffering from dislexia.  
 
Sharilyn was introduced by her assistant principal, Melissa Duve.  She presented a lengthy account of her career and how she seeks to teach every child in her care every day, urging them on to love, to inspire and to develop.  She believes that all students can learn and grow beyond their expectations.
 
In her capacity of an interventionist, Sharilyn must  develop close collaboration with her teaching colleagues, whom she greatly admires.  She is also the recipient of returned admiration from them.  Sharilyn speaks warmly of how much her colleagues have taught her.
