Mrs. Sherrie West
First, I retired from Craven County Schools eight years ago after serving in North Carolina schools for thirty years. I retired from teaching the Academically and Intellectually Gifted program at H J MacDonald Middle School, so I wanted to come back part time and teach AIG in elementary school. I am so fortunate to have served Graham Barden since retiring.
I grew up in Charlotte, NC, attended University of South Florida, and graduated from UNC at Wilmington. I taught English and Social Studies many years of my career before moving into teaching gifted students. I moved to New Bern with my husband in 1981. He grew up in Newport and wanted to return to this area. We have a daughter, married, with two little girls. We have a son working and loving life in Wilmington, NC.
I enjoy reading, painting, art work, growing flowers, yoga, fishing, and anything to do with the beach!
