Sharon Solomon is the Founder and CEO of Quayside Isle Preparatory School.
Sharon began her journey as a student, struggling to learn. Her own experiences shaped her decision to venture down a path to help the differentiated learner – the one who “falls through the cracks”, the “teacher’s nightmare”, the “parent’s dilemma”.
After teaching in private clinics, working with diverse learners over several years, and partnering with the Dyslexia Association of Singapore (DAS) to set up its first ever library catering to the dyslexic reader, the vision for her own school was formed.
Today, through the first school she founded, the Winstedt School, and the Ronald McDonald House Charity, of which she is a member of its executive committee, she is creating a library for the new wing of the National University Hospital paediatric ward set to be opened later this year. Fully committed to sponsoring and maintaining this library, Sharon hopes to reach out to these chronically sick children and families.
A former journalist at CNBC Asia, Sharon Solomon has held positions in AWARE (Association of Women for Action and Research), the Manasseh Meyer International School and Ronald McDonald House Charities. Sharon Solomon remains a strong advocate for children’s rights and learning disabilities both locally and internationally, documenting the changing landscape of education in the global arena.
