Julius R. Scruggs
Child Development Center & Academy
My name is Mrs. VeraSharon King, and I will be your scholar’s K4 teacher. I am very excited to join the academic staff here at JRSCDCA.
A little about myself; I am from a small town of Shelbyville, Tennessee where I began my journey in early childcare as an assistant in the late 80’s after high school graduation at a private preschool and while in college. I graduated from Motlow State Community College and Middle Tennessee State University with a degree in Early Education and Liberal Arts. I taught in an elementary school teaching kindergarten to fifth grade and also served as a Title I Reading Aide and became a Title I Reading Specialist. My most current role of almost ten years was as lead PreK teacher for an area preschool St. Stephen’s CDC where I ended my tenure to stay at home with my only granddaughter who I adore. I have recently worked as an OSR Pre-K Auxiliary Teacher in the Huntsville City School system.
My husband and I also have three sons. Our oldest lives and works in Tennessee while we have two serving in the United States ARMY, one son is an MP and the youngest son is a Combat Medic.
My pastimes are relaxing with my family and my granddaughter! Reading, Pinterest crafts & planning, listening to music. I also enjoy shopping at local thrift stores. I look forward to a great year helping your child to learn and grow here at JRSCDCA.
