Welcome to Miss Sherwin's 8th grade class!
I am your child's 8th grade special ed. teacher. I am excited and anticipating a wonderful year. I am looking forward to working with you this school year. My classroom environment is centered around the BIST model. This model is designed to teach and protect students, via Grace and Accountability so that students can demonstrate the 3 goals for life and make good choices. Along with this model, I teach the 3 R's (respect yourself, others, property), Peace for Kids curriculum, and implement the PBIS program.
