Welcome to the Principal's Page

Mrs. Sharon Dousharm, principal

As an alumna and former Math teacher of Laney High School I am particularly excited to be back at Laney and to be serving as the principal of Laney High School.

I have lived in Wilmington since I was six years old, and attended the public schools here in New Hanover County. I received a Secondary Math Education degree from UNCW, and began my career at Williston Middle School. After teaching at Wiliston for 3.5 years, I moved to Laney High School and taught in the math department for two years. I stayed at Laney for another four years as an Assistant Principal while earning my Master's in School Administration from UNCW. I was the principal at Trask for 12 years.

I have two children, Rachel and Chris, who attended Trask and graduated from Laney. As you can see, I haven't gone far from home. I can't imagine myself living anywhere else.

I look forward to meeting you and working with the Laney family.
