     Welcometo fourth grade! I will be your teacher this year. My name is Mrs. RebeccaSherman.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I am 45 years old. I am married and have three children. This is my 5th year at Jerry Ross Elementary School. I graduated from Purdue University in 1991 and worked for many years before coming to Jerry Ross helping educators and students with science education through my work at Indiana University Northwest’s Sciencemobile, the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and the Lake County Solid Waste Management District’s Enviromobile.

          I am so happy I decided to join the staff at Jerry Ross; I love my job teaching and love working with children. I am looking forward to getting to know all the new students this year!

Zippy and Shadow

      I have two dogs, both pound puppies. Jynx is a black, three year old, 40 pound puppy and Zippy is a cream colored, seven year old, 8 pound Maltese mix. Jynx and Zippy are our ying and yang.

We also have a grey cat named Elton and a few dozen fish at home. 

     When I get a chance I love to spend time at Miller Beach which is just a mile from my former office in the Indiana Dunes.
