Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Claudine Sharko
My name is Claudine Sharko and I am a 17 year veteran teacher at Hubert Humphrey Middle School. I wear many hats in Valley View, but of course, being a teacher is my most important role and being a mom to Gianna 7 and Anthony 5. At Western Illinois University I was a History major and went on to receive my master's degree at Northen Illinois Univeristy in Curriculum and Instruction. All 17 years have been here at HHH, so I consider HHH my home. I have been actively involved at HHH as a volleyball coach, student government sponsor, Helping Hands coordinator, reflective coach, and SAT member. Currently, I am the President of the Valley View Council which is comprised of 1,800 Valley View members who are a part of Local 604 IFT-AFT, AFL-CIO. I am proud to be the Union President and serve the educators who serve our students every day in our classrooms.
Being a teacher in the 21st c. is one of the most challenging career choices. However, I wouldn't choose any other profession as inspriing my students makes my days worthwhile.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
