Ms. Sherrier benefitted from a public school education growing up in Montclair, NJ, enrolled in one of the first magnet school systems in the country. She attended Tulane University in New Orleans and discovered her passion for literature and writing in her first undergraduate English class. This inspired her to pursue a double major in English and Communications with a minor in Psychology. During her time in New Orleans, Ms. Sherrier worked at a local charter school, teaching Kindergarten art classes as well as providing individual instruction for all elementary grade levels.
Upon graduating in 2011, Ms. Sherrier moved to New York City and worked in public relations at Rubenstein Public Relations. However, she soon was drawn back into the world of academia, and in 2014, she continued her education journey and enrolled in the Master of Arts Literature program at City College of New York (CCNY).
At CCNY, Ms. Sherrier immersed herself in the world of composition pedagogy, gaining adjunct experience teaching a variety of undergraduate writing courses including: Freshman Composition, Fairy Tales and the Re-Writings, Writing for Engineers, and Prose Workshop. In 2017, she earned the Norman Levine Outstanding Teacher’s Award presented by CCNY. In an effort to further explore the issues of education equity in NYC, Ms. Sherrier accepted a teaching position at Success Academy, the largest charter-school network in the state of New York, teaching sophomore Literature and Writing.
Ms. Sherrier is eager to join Mill Creek Academy’s talented team and guide students through purposeful feedback to elevate their personal statements. She believes that everyone can be a capable writer with plenty of editing, hard work, and determination.
During her free time, you can find her sitting on a bench at a local museum just soaking in the beauty that comes with art and history.
