Sharon Perry, the Founder/CEO of iBexEd, has taught math for more than 25 years in 5th grade through high school in a variety of venues: public, private, home schooling, and tutoring. She helped found a math and science academy in Austin and taught private writing and science classes. Yet, her greatest achievements have been enjoying life with her husband of over 25 years and raising her three vibrant children, all who are out of the nest and flourishing in their careers and college.

Through her years of experience as a mother and teacher, Sharon observed the younger generations’ rapidly growing needs in the areas of executive functions and emotional intelligence and started iBexEd to address these crucial needs of young people today.
