Mrs. Sherry W. Shirley

HI!  My name is Sherry Wilson Shirley.  I am a second grade teacher with 21 years of teaching experience at Fairmount Elementary School.  I am a highly qualified P-5 certified teacher holding a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education with a Reading Endorsement. 

I have spent the majority of my life at Fairmount Schools.  I attended first through twelth grades at Fairmount, graduating as Valedictorian of my class.  I married and moved away for a few years but eventually returned to Fairmount Elemenatary as a substitute teacher.  I attended Berry College where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education, and began teaching 2nd grade at FES as a certified teacher in 2000.  I earned my Master's Degree through Piedmont College in 2008. In 2010 I moved to 3rd grade and remained teaching that grade level for 9 years.  I returned to second grade last year and remembered all the things that I love about that grade level. 

On a personal note, I am married to Causby Lewis Shirley, Jr who retired from the military a few year ago.  We have three grown daughters who have families of their own and four grandchildren. We live in the Ryo community of Gordon County and recenlty added a new pet family member-- Phoebe, a chihuahua mix dog.
