Teacher of October

By Kirsten Hernandez

Kayla Sherman joins SHS for her first year of teaching. This year Sherman is teaching pre-algebra, algebra and geometry. Sherman wanted to become a teacher because of her love for kids.

Last year, Sherman graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in biology. Although she doesn’t have a degree in math, she thought she was well equipped to teach math.sherman

On her free time Sherman enjoys to go running, hiking and traveling or anything outdoors.

Sherman said, “My favorite holiday is Christmas, because it’s a time you get to spend with your family and there’s great food.”

A fun fact that most students don’t know about her is that for her last year of college Sherman studied abroad in Thailand. Another thing that some may not know is that Sherman grew up and graduated in Sterling. Sherman has two pets, she has a dog named Ralph and a cat named Zip. Sherman said, “I became a teacher this year to help prepare students and to be a role model.”
