Carminati Principal Vernice Sharpe


As the new principal of Nevitt Elementary School, I welcome you to this school year! I am eagerly anticipating a successful and rewarding year, and I look forward to working with the dedicated staff, parents and community to provide an exceptional educational experience for Nevitt’s students.

For those of you who I have yet to have the pleasure of meeting, please allow me to introduce myself. Prior to joining the Nevitt School community, I worked as principal in another Tempe School District #3 school for nine years. Previously in my career I have served as English Language Arts teacher, taught in every grade from kindergarten to 6th grade, literacy coach, university intern supervisor, and assistant principal.

I thank you for entrusting your children to the Nevitt staff. We do not take lightly our responsibility in ensuring your children experience a highly-engaging educational experience in a safe and nurturing environment, and we are thrilled to partner with our families as they embark on this leg of their children’s academic journey.

I am excited and honored to join the Nevitt family for what I know will be an amazing school year. Those who know me know that I truly have an open door policy, and I welcome your questions, concerns, and input at any time.

Proud to be a Knight,
Vernice Sharpe
