My name is Charissa Sheffield and I am looking forward to serving as your child’s teacher this year. My name is Charissa Sheffield. My husband, John, and I live here in Franklin with our two children, Matthew (16), a Junior at Independence High School and Susanna (14) an eighth grader at Hillsboro Middle School. John and I are both originally from Alabama (War Eagle!). I have a bachelors degree from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. John is the Auburn alum in our family. We have been married 21 years and have lived in Tennessee since we were married. We are members of Christ Community Church. This is my eighth year to teach at MSP. I love teaching threes and young fours – their joy and enthusiasm for learning make me happy! It is an honor to participate in planting seeds of faith in their young minds and heart. I am so excited to get to know your children. I want to nurture a strong sense of confidence in each child in our class. Most importantly, I want to teach them that they are a most precious creation of God, our father. He loves them most of all and will always be present in their lives. “I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me” Philippians 4:13
