I am glad to begin my fifth year teaching at Lake Hills STEM Magnet School. I am looking forward to the 2018-2019 school year. This is my 2nd year teaching 5th grade. I am excited for this next school year filled with learning and fun.
For the families that may not know me yet, my name is Shariann Forker. I am a graduate of Purdue University. Prior to teaching at Lake Hills, I had the great fortune of visiting, observing, and volunteering in various schools across Northwest Indiana for over 15 years. I also worked as a teacher in La Porte for two years. This will be my fifth year here at Lake Hills. I spent last three years as a 4th grade teacher and two years teaching 5th grade.A little bit about me, I live in La Porte with my husband and have two sons. One son is a junior in high school and the other graduated last year. We stay active with our son's sports schedules throughout most of the year. Our four beagles and one cat are definitely a huge part of our lives. My hobbies are reading, traveling, and drawing. Personally, I love art and hope to bring many wonderful art projects into my lessons when applicable. I believe all students are important and deserve a quality education.
