In today’s world, teachers need the word of God to help them assist students and parents, Sharon Price believes. “There are so many outside forces that our students face that cause difficulty in the classrooms and in their lives,” said Price, who spent her career before coming to Trinity working in secular schools. “Often, we are called to serve students, parents, and staff that are not easy to assist.”

According to Price, leading by example is paramount. “My faith and honor for God is shown in compassion, respect, accountability, and leading by example for teachers, staff, and parents. Leaders should be approachable and encourage the people around them. In the midst of all the uncertainty that surrounds us, keeping this philosophy has served me well and allowed people to see my faith in God through the teaching I provide.”

Price attended college as a non-traditional student, which provides her with a unique perspective in her role as director of Adult Studies Education at Trinity. “I know the hardships of balancing roles and responsibilities. I could not have completed my education without the grace and mercy of God.”

Price and her husband are members of Living Word Christian Center in Forest Park, Ill.
