Sharon Pettey-Taylor hails from a long line of educators. She has held various teacher leadership positions in the New York City Department of Education during her 20 years of service. She is presently a Shared School-Based Mentor who has recently completed five years of full-time mentoring in Brooklyn middle and high schools, under the direction of the New Teacher Induction Program. She has also served as an online course Facilitator for Teachers Network: Aligning Standards, Curriculum and Assessment and Becoming a Professional.

Sharon likens her mentoring experience to a kaleidoscope  “which constantly changes, similar to intertwining colors and patterns, visualizing interactive and illuminating roles, identifying the needs of all teachers.  This cycle of continuous, strategic support, once set in motion, promotes brilliant, individualized styles of teaching and learning, thus replicating our professional standards and goals of collaboration and mutual respect.”
