  • Author Bio

    Gretta Sharp is extremely excited to be entering the third year of her doctoral program at Indiana Wesleyan University. She is the mother of four beautiful daughters: Shakita, 40, Angela, 34, Ashley, 30, and Shaliyah, 20. Currently, the author is employed with Goodwill Industries Excel Centers as a math educator, where she teaches algebraic concepts to adults returning to school in an effort to obtain their high school diploma. Prior to becoming an educator, the author worked in the insurance industry for over 24 years as a Senior Umbrella and Commercial Multi-Lines Underwriter, working with a diverse range of accounts and coverages. This position afforded her the opportunity to act as trainer and mentor to new hires, and her agency plant.

    The author is passionate about the students she serves and seeks to foster relationships that will further cultivate increased avenues of service to inner-city youth. The author began her educational journey to become a credible witness to the young people she sought to reach and whose lives she aspired to transform by registering for classes at Martin University. Upon completion of her undergraduate studies, she enrolled in Indiana Wesleyan’s Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership Program, a program that provided her with a more in-depth clarity of purpose. However, the author recognized that if she was going to foster an atmosphere in the classroom that would equip and enhance the minds of urban youth, she must endeavor to gain additional clarity in the areas and implementation of wisdom, servanthood, stewardship, and leadership. Therefore, she applied and was accepted into Indiana Wesleyan’s Organizational Leadership doctoral program.

    The author has held leadership roles within her church, chairing various ministries and outreach programs including an educational summer camp for at-risk youth. She has hosted women’s events and spoken at several events in the Indianapolis area and the Midwest. The author is looking forward to presenting at the GEM Conference in Indianapolis on the topic, The impact of leader educators’ emotional intelligence in the classroom.
