About Me

My career started in Cleveland, Ohio, teaching grade 2. I’ve taught in Duesseldorf, Germany, Hong Kong, and am currently the Elementary Principal / PYP Coordinator at ISS International School in Singapore. I enjoy teaching and am passionate about Differentiation, Assessment, and Technology.  I am an IB PYP Workshop Leader, Visiting Team Member and Reader. I am a CIS Visiting Team Member and WASC team member.

My personal professional site can be found here: colinandsharyn.com

Throughout the years, I have found that the most effective PD comes from my interactions with other teachers. This blog will hopefully share my ideas and encourage you to share your thoughts with me.

My husband, Colin Gallagher (@colingally), is Head of Educational Technology and Innovation at ISS International School.

    I am the IB coordinator at an elementary school in Shaker Heights, Ohio. We just finished our first PYP exhibition with our 4th grade students. It was magical! Your mentor perspective was interesting to read and I look forward to sharing it with staff prior to embarking on our next exhbition. Thank you for your blog, I find your postings to be informative and helpful.
    So greetings to you from Cleveland…and yay Indians!

  2. Hi Sharyn,

    I’m a third year student studying online for my Bachelor of Education: Primay through the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. I live in Kunshan, China. I’m currently doing an ICT course and expanding my Personal Learning Network and was happy to find your blog. Following teacher blogs is great for PD and is almost like being mentored by experienced others through my own learning journey. Thanks for sharing your teaching journey – I look forward to reading your previous posts and new posts.
