Sapphire Sasha Wickham, teacher at North Broward Academy of Excellence, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in language arts.
With 13 years of experience to her credit, Ms. Wickham has excelled as a teacher at North Broward Academy of Excellence. In her role, she teaches second grade, English language arts, and math. Sometimes, she also teaches science and social studies. She creates lesson plans and attends meetings with team members. She has also worked with United Healthcare Inc.
Before embarking on her professional path, Ms. Wickham pursued an education at Pace University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in communications, magna cum laude, in 2013. She concluded her academic efforts at Full Sail University, graduating with a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing in 2017. In light of her impressive undertakings, she has accrued several accolades throughout her career. She was selected for inclusion in Marquis Who’s Who of Professional Women. She wrote a television pilot script which placed highly in a screenwriting contest.
Ms. Wickham became a teacher to assist her son. As a parent, there were many things in school she didn’t understand because the teachers and the administration were less than transparent in sharing the details of her son’s educational experiences. She wanted to know everything about what was taking place for him, not only school activities, but his behavior at home as well. Her most notable achievement was when she received the letter from the Board of Education in Tallahassee last year granting her the teacher’s certification.
In the immediate future, Ms. Wickham envisions herself teaching or writing for television and film. Currently, she is writing novels and will continue to push that career path in the next five years while expanding her skills and familiarity with television and film. She lives by the motto “Today for me, tomorrow for you.” Her journey as an educator and writer has not been easy, and included times in which she asked herself why she was teaching. But when she gets into the classroom and sees the children, she remembers she’s there to help them.
