Mrs. Sheri Sommerfeld

Meet the Teacher!

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Mrs. Sheri Sommerfeld and I am thrilled to have your child in my Grade Two class! I am looking forward to getting to know your child. We are going to have a fun and exciting year of learning together. Thank you for entrusting your child to my care.

I am a passionate teacher and care deeply about my students. The most important thing in teaching to me is my students and their individual needs. I believe in creating a place to learn where students treat each other kindly and with compassion.

I live in Chestermere with my family and we love it here. We have two children. We have a very busy schedule but love every minute of it. We spend lots of time outdoors. We enjoy camping and quadding and spending time together.

Some of my favorites...
Food: Buffalo chicken wings (This is why I work out!)
Movie: Transformers (It reminds me of the amazing boys in my life – fun times!)
Book: I Love You The Purplest (If you have not read this book – I highly recommend it!)
Color: Purple
Drink: Coffee
Season: Summer
Sports Team: Calgary Roughnecks
Hobby: Scrapbooking (although I never have enough time) and spending time with my family and friends who are the best anyone could ever ask for!

I graduated from the University of Lethbridge with my Bachelor of Education in 1991 and have taught a varied range of ages and subjects including Kindergarten, Grades 1-3 (in one room), Junior High Math, Music and Physical Education.

I am excited to be working with an amazing team of Grade Two teachers. I know I will learn and grow this year.

Open communication is extremely important to me. If you would ever like to talk to me about your child, please call the school, write me a note in the agenda or send me a quick e-mail which you can find on the school website by clicking on my name.

As many of you know, we lost our son Jaydon in a tragic car accident in June of 2015. Obviously this has been the biggest challenge my family has ever faced, but with the love and support of our family, friends, my colleagues and the community of Chestermere as a whole, we are beginning the healing process. I am happy to be back to work to resume some normalcy, meet a new group of lovable children, and have a fun, exciting year; but my heart will always be with Jaydon.

Always remember that "Life's Too Shorts" – take the time to enjoy, spend time with friends and play like you were a kid! (This was Jaydon’s last tweet...)
