Hello! I'm Sherry Falk, an AMI trained Montessori teacher. I am so excited to begin this school year! I received my Montessori certification from the Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies in 2017. I have a bachelor's degree in business from Penn State University. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Go Steelers!) I have lived in Arizona for over 20 years and love the Valley of the Sun. (Go Cardinals!)
Teaching is technically my third career. I started out in the computer industry as a technical support representative and worked my way up to an Information Systems Director over 12 years. Then, I had three children in five years and became a stay-at-home mom which was/is the most rewarding and challenging position of all. After taking the time to raise my children, I decided to become trained in what I am most passionate about. I discovered that my passion truly lies with children. I love the Montessori program because the teacher is a "guide" who encourages children to become independent, creative thinkers, and life-long lovers of learning.
I believe that all children are unique and learn at different paces and in different ways. The Montessori program supports the child and the guide in the learning process and allows the children to make discoveries of their own. I am so grateful to have this opportunity at Pomeroy Elementary. Go Panthers!
