Hi! I am Sherry Truesdell and my assistant is Suni Berryhill. I am very excited to be teaching first grade. I first came to Glenwood in 1996 after spending 10 years at home raising a family. My husband Stacy and I have 5 children, 4 daughter in laws, three wonderful grandkids, and one more on the way. I worked as a teacher assistant and went back to school at Mars Hill College to get my K-6 Elementary Education Degree. I began my teaching career in 2004 as a First Steps Reading teacher, then I taught 6th grade for 2 years, and 5th grade, and 3rd grade until this year. This is my first year in 1st grade and I'm loving it. The kids are great and so excited to learn new things. I'm so thankful to have a part in your child's educational career. Working together we can help them accomplish anything. I'm looking forward to a fantastic year!

Please continue working with your child each night on Letterland / spelling homework, and baggie book reading.  After the first of the year we will also be doing story questions twice weekly.

First Grade Reading Practice

We work daily on reading and skills to decode new words.  We will be sending home word cards for them to practice.  We will go through the word list and send 4 or 5 cards with words that they are having problems with. Please practice these words with your child each night.  Together we can accomplish great things.
