Sherrie KoernerDyslexia / ESL CoordinatorSunnyvale ISDsherrie.email@example.com
Hi! My name is Sherrie Koerner. This is my 21st year in education. I taught 13 years at Forney ISD and this is my 8th year here at Sunnyvale.
I graduated from Dallas Baptist University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, with a specialization in reading and an early childhood endorsement. I earned my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a principal certification from Texas A&M University of Commerce. I have been trained in the MTA Program and have an English as a Second Language certification (EC-12) and SPED certification (EC-12).
I have always loved teaching and knew it was my calling when I was a senior in high school. It's always a thrilling experience to teach students and instill in them the love of learning. I feel very blessed to get to carry that out on a daily basis here at Sunnyvale.
