Ms. Sharon Angrisani

I am a graduate of Stockton University with a B.A. in Business Management. I spent several years in the Hospitality Industry having worked in various local restaurants. For ten years, my husband and I operated a restaurant in Ocean City. I started substitute teaching in 2011 and enjoy working with children and helping them learn. I began substitute teaching in the Egg Harbor School District in 2017, where Alder Avenue Middle School was one of my favorite places to work. I really like working with special needs students and am happy to be with the students and staff in Ms. Tomlinson’s room. I live in Brigantine where I like to spend time on the beach with my husband and daughter.
