I am very pleased to join the Bridges Program this year. I have been helping young people excel for over 20 years. My favorite quote is...

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” Forest E. Witcraft   When I am not at school you can usually find me spending time with my husband, son, or our two cats. I also enjoy couponing, traveling, movie watching, and even entering contests

I am the Instrucitonal Facilitator and new Literacy Coach at Bridges. I have been teaching in the Wake County School System for over 20 years and was lucky enough to transfer to Bridges in the fall of 2020. I am so pleased to be in this role at Bridges where I can support these amazing teachers and students. I live in Fuquay-Varina with my husband and 2 children. My son is a Freshman at Appalachian State Univeristy, and my daughter is a middle-schooler in WCPSS. Every day I come to work with a sense of pride in what we are doing here to support children to be successful, not just academically, but socially and emotionally.

Sheryl Jules

I am the Autism and Behavior specialist. I’ve been with the Bridges Program for a total of 12+ years, with a couple of breaks in between. After teaching out in the real world for a little while, I realized there really is “no place like home” and happily returned to the program to teach 2nd grade. I am entering my 6th year of teaching, and my 3rd year of teaching at the Bridges Program. I am fully invested in the work that I do, and truly believe that every child can be reached. When I’m not pouring everything I have into the kids that I serve, I can be found overindulging in sushi and hanging out with my husband and my two rescue pitbulls- Al Green and Dolly Parton.
