    Hi! My name is Laurie Sharp and I am a social worker at Apollo Elementary School. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at The American University in Washington D.C. and received my Masters of Social Work at Loyola University in Chicago.

    I have been at Apollo for the past 8 years and have over 20 years of experience working with children ages 3-18 in both schools and family service agencies.

    I am originally from New York; however, I have lived in the Chicagoland area for over 20 years. I have one daughter who recently graduated college and is working as a journalist in Washington DC.

    When I am not at Apollo, I enjoy reading, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
