Welcome to Jefferson Elementary! My name is Dave Sharkey. I have been serving Des Moines Public Schools for over 15 years. Before I became an administrator I taught 4th grade at Windsor Elementary for 8 years. I received my Bachelors in Education at Grand View University and my Masters in Education from Viterbo University. In my spare time you can find me transporting one of my seven children to and from school events. You can also find me cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Minnesota Vikings! I am looking forward to a great year at Jefferson Elementary!
