It was wonderful to meet everyone last night in our first class. I’m Sherry Lohmeyer. Up until the summer, my husband and I lived in Soldotna, AK, with our two-year-old and two Labs. Now, we’ve moved back to Tallahassee, FL, to be closer to family. On July 27th, I had a big ‘ole baby boy. I’m currently teaching online classes with Kenai Peninsula College while staying home with my two little ones. I taught high school English and community college for a few years before moving to Alaska, and I’m really looking forward to this course and progressing toward a Master’s in Education in general. My hope is to return to the high school classroom as a fully certified English teacher.
For now, my hobbies include reading “Go, Dog! Go.” three times a day and cutting off the crusts on PB and J. I’ve also rediscovered a love for swinging on swingsets. I keep a regular blog for family, also through WordPress, and try to read all our current issues of Harper’s and The New Yorker. When I think about myself as a teacher again, I hope to design and implement a challenging curriculum that feels accessible and inspiring to students. I love teaching English.
