Madison Middle School | Media Specialist
Hi, my name is Sharon Axthelm. I am a teacher/librarian at Madison Middle School. I am a North Platte High School graduate and have worked in the North Platte District since 2009 and at Madison since 2012.
I earned my Bachelors in Education from UNK with endorsements in English and ESL. I then earned my Masters in Library Science from UNK as well. Working at Madison gives me the awesome opportunity to utilize both my degrees. I get to share my love of reading with students and support them in becoming stronger, more strategic readers. My greatest passion is working with STUDENTS! I tell people all the time, I have the best job in the world!
Outside of school, I spend as much time with my family as possible. My husband, Jason Axthelm, is the VP at NebraskaLink. My son, Case, is a senior at Brady High School and my daughter, Kate is a freshman. Both kids are very involved in extracurricular activities, so much of Jason’s and my time is spent supporting our kids in their endeavors. We hit it hard during the school year, because when summer comes, we want to travel!
