Hi everyone! Welcome to Santan Junior High!! My name is Valerie Sherrill (pronounced like the female first name "Cheryl") and I am excited to meet you! We are going to have a lot of fun this year!!!

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with my Bachelor's in Education and my Master's in Science Teaching. I started teaching in 2001 and have taught 7th and 8th grade science, as well as Biology, Earth Science, and Integrated Science at the high school level. Not only am I a teacher, but I also went back to school and obtained an Associates Degree in Radiologic Technology - a fancy way of saying X-ray tech.

My Educational Philosophy

I know each student that walks through my door has unlimited potential and it is my job to help them take steps towards realizing that. My goal by the end of the year is that my students walk out of my classroom with the ability to critically think and be able to solve problems in a logical manner.
