    Apple Teacher
    Mission Statement

            The third grade students in Mrs. Schermerhorn's class want to grow up to be helpful and responsible community members. We will do this by graduating from high school and college/military. We will work hard to learn. We will learn by listening, following directions, taking chances and making mistakes. We will succeed!
    About Me

       This is my fourth year at TES, and my fifth year in third grade!  I also taught at N.B. Mills in Statesville.  My husband, our son Travis and I moved to North Carolina in the summer of 2014.  Before moving here, we lived in Glenville, New York.  I taught in the town we lived in for 15 years.  Troutman reminds me of our little town in New York.  I taught first grade for nine years, second grade for one year and kindergarten for five years.  In addition to Travis, my husband and I have two grown children, Amanda and Christopher.  We have three dogs too - Lily, Charlotte and Duncan.  Your students will hear about my family and doggies throughout the school year! 
       My family and I live in Troutman, and Travis attends South Iredell.  I enjoy being part of the Troutman community.  It is fun to see familiar faces in the grocery store or at sporting events.  I'm looking forward to another fun school year!
