About Sherrie

I am a newly retired teacher. I have degrees in both child development and art, and I have two teaching credentials as well. My art credential allows me to teach students from K-12th grade and my other credential is my multiple subjects credential which allows me to teach elementary school. I taught elementary school for 30 years in LAUSD working with preschoolers through 5th graders.

The last 20 years was devoted to working with special needs preschoolers and their families to help them become more successful when they enter pre kindergarten. Prior work experiences have involved special needs students at the San Fernando Child Guidance clinic, as well as the infant toddler program at UCLA. My background and teaching style stems from my many years as a camp counselor and art specialist. I have experience in many areas of art.

My art background is my primary qualification, but my personal style is gentle, understanding and trust building. I believe in order to teach someone anything, you must connect with them. Students need to feel safe and understood. I have a sense of humor and am flexible, which is what makes learning time with me enjoyable, rather than stressful. I communicate well with my students so they have an understanding of my expectations and I, in turn give them my focused attention.
