Hello! My name is Shara Jarvela and this is my 5th year at Northland Learning Center. I teach in the Elementary Focus Program at the Northland Learning Center, working specifically with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am also currently our representative on the Community Board of Practice for Autism for region 3! I previously worked as a 6th grade teacher at Northeast Range in Babbitt MN. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Superior with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education grades 1-6 and a minor in Special Education.  I am currently attending Saint Mary's University for a Master's Degree for Autism Spectrum Disorder which will be completed this year!

I grew up in Aurora, MN and attended Mesabi East from Kindergarten through 12th grade. I then went off to Superior to college but I always knew that I would be back on the Iron Range soon. 

I love to be outdoors hunting, fishing, playing fetch with my dog, playing or coaching volleyball, spending time with my family and reading. All year round I really enjoy being busy and involved in every aspect of my life and my career. 

Parent/guardian communication is very important to me. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns at any time. The easiest way to contact me is by email, as I check it frequently at home and at school. You may also call me at school. The hours of 7:30-8:30 and 2:30-3:30 work best for phone calls.
