Sharon Djafaripour joined the Rising Star staff in 2004. Prior to working at Rising Star, Sharon worked for nearly 30 years as a dental lab technician. Her son Ryan attended the school from age 3 through the 4th grade. The years have passed quickly and I have seen many children grow and develop into confident individuals. She enjoys and finds it remarkable to witness the children grow and develop into confident and engaged learners. In her spare time she enjoys jewelry making, baking, cooking, traveling and Zumba. She’s also the Rising Star fix-it person and whom prospective families call to set up school tours.
