Mr. Sherrill

Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Sherrill

Welcome to My Classroom

    I am truly excited to be here at Jackson Park Elementary School.  I would like to introduce myself and tell you a little about me. My name is Joshua Sherrill. I was born and raised around Kannapolis.  I attended Jackson Park Elementary School from 1st through 3rd grade before moving into the Rowan-Salisbury School System.  I was in the high school graduating class of 1999.  I enjoy reading, exploring nature, and I am passionate about movies.  I enjoy time with family and friends.  
    I am excited to make this year a great fourth grade experience for my students.  If you ever need anything please feel free to contact me through email at, Class DOJO or call the school at 704-933-2831.

College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:

I attended college at RCCC from 2007-2010 and UNCC from 2010-2014, graduating in May with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education. 

Educational Philosophy/Vision:

    I believe that every child has the ability to learn and grow as an individual if they have the right motivation.  I know from experience that in order to grow you need to be challenged in ways that push you out of your comfort zone.  I will motivate each child to push themselves to the edge of their comfort zone and then past it.   I will always be mindful of every students’ need to feel safe, loved, and respected.  I will treat each student so they always feel these things.  My hope for this year is to bring new experiences and fun to learning.  In using this approach I believe we can prepare them for a successful future.

What We are Studying:

Here is what we will be learning during our first quarter of studies. 


By the end of the quarter, students should be able to refer to details and examples when drawing inferences from the text, be able to determine the meaning of words and phrases as used in a text and be able to compare and contrast different points of view of an event.  We will also be working on opinion writing.  


By the end of the quarter, students should be able to multiply with numbers 2x1 (13x2), 3x1 (234x4), 4x1 (434x5) and 2x2 (23x24).  Should will also be learning how to divide a 2 digit by 1-digit using various strategies, apply area and perimeter for rectangles to solve problems, measure angles and solves unknown angle problems and be able to draw, analyzes, and classifies two-dimensional geometric objects and figures.

Things parents/guardians can do to help:

    Please have your student read every night for at least 20 minutes.  Reading plays such a big part in all that we do.  Also try to have them practice their multiplication facts in some form.
