Hello and welcome to my online classroom! My name is Sharon Olander Tangeman and I have been teaching first grade in Kettering for 23 years. Before I came to Kettering I taught for half a year in Dayton. I did my student teaching at Moraine Meadows Elementary and taught there for 16 years. Upon the closing of MM I moved to Oakview. I am happy to be a part of the Oakview family!
I have an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts from Sinclair, a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and a Masters in Teacher Leadership from Wright State University. I love teaching and learning and find joy in each and every day
. I am married to Ralph Tangeman (38 years in 2016) and we have two adult children, Chris & Karyn. Chris is married to Casey and they have Kylee, Kole, Jetta & Braelyn. Karyn is married to Keith Honigford and they have Sammy, Bailey and Rylin. My grandaughter Kylee gave birth to our first great grandchild, Brody, on August 18, 2016. I love my family dearly and treasure any time I get to spend with them. I have a dog, a cat and a tank of goldfish. I live in Preble County so I have a long commute everyday.
I am a reader, a writer,a thinker, a questioner, a talker, a listener and most of all a lover of life & people. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about who I am!
