Sharon Dahlman
Founder,
Bright Promise
  • Dr. Dahlman founded Bright Promise in 2011 to help students attain their highest possible scores on the ACT test--one of the most important criterion colleges use to determine admission and scholarships. 
  •  The classes are open to all students at Green High School and surrounding districts and are designed to help students attain their highest possible scores--whether it is the first time they take the test or after numerous attempts.
  • Dr. Sharon Dahlman retired in 2009 from Green Local Schools with a total of 35 years in education.  She is first, and most importantly, a teacher.  She also worked as a Curriculum Director and Gifted Coordinator in Coventry, as well as a Language Arts Consultant and Test Developer for Stark County Educational Service Center.  She holds a teaching degree from Kent State, a Masters in supervision/instruction from Akron U, and a Ph.D. from Akron U in education/curriculum studies.
  • Students who complete the classes and assigned practice typically raise their composite scores an average of 3 points, but highly-motivated students have improved as much as 10 points.
