Student in classroom - Resurrection School - Sunnyvale

Mrs. Sharon Varga

2nd Grade Instructional Aide, Office Assistant and Extended Care 
Has been at Resurrection since: 1996

Mrs. Varga began working at Resurrection in a part-time capacity in 1996 and went full-time in 2000. During this time she has been an aide in the classroom, worked in the office and has been the PTG president in 1997/1998 and 1999/2000. She has been an aide in kindergarten through eighth grade and is currently working full-time as the aide in 2nd grade and the receptionist/nurse in the school office. She also works in Extended Care and helps out in the Homework Room.

She attended Catholic grammar and high school in Oakland, CA. She graduated from Heald Business College as a legal secretary and worked for the F.B.I., Transamerica Airlines, and General Electric all in their legal departments. She has been happily married for 30 years. She has one son, Michael, who attended Resurrection for ten years (JK - 8) and graduated in 2004.   He graduated from St. Francis High School in 2008, and from U.C. Santa Cruz in 2013 with a degree in English/Journalism. He currently works at a high tech company in San Francisco.

Her favorite hobbies are gardening, decorating, and traveling. She enjoys time in the yard to meditate and enjoy the sunshine. She also enjoys traveling to her second home in Arizona and being with her family.   One of her favorite books is Dr. Phil’s Families Come First. For her, this is so true because she is very devoted to all of her family. Nothing can be more important than the quality time that she can spend with her family.

The best advice she has received comes from her husband, “Take one day at a time”, and “Don’t worry, things always work out.” Her parents always told her “Never Give Up”. They gave her an outstanding Catholic education and upbringing, and she has so much respect for them. This is what she and her husband are doing for their son, Michael, at this very important time in his life.

She loves working with the outstanding staff and helping the children on a daily basis. The more knowledge we can give to them the better they will become. Resurrection is the “Place to Be.” The smile on the children’s faces when you inspire them with a Catholic environment is so rewarding to all of us.
