Welcome to My Classroom

My name is Sherri Ward and I am a First Grade teacher at Cherokee Trail Elementary School. I have been teaching for 32 years. I graduated from Spartanburg High School in Spartanburg, SC and went on to Lander College in Greenwood, SC. I graduated with a BS in Elementary Education with certification in Early Childhood Education. I continued my education and earned a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Phoenix. 

I have taught many different levels: Kindergarten, Third Grade, Science Lab for Kdg-4th grade, EIA Reading, Fifth Grade Gifted/Talented summer program and First Grade. 

I took three years from teaching to become the Coordinator of Curriculum and Instruction in Abbeville County School District. Although I enjoyed my job I really missed the classroom. I returned to the classroom in 2009  and I am currently teaching first grade. 

I previously taught in McCormick County where I was a District Teacher of the Year.
