Ms. Session's 5th Grade Welcome Video
Get to Know Ms. Session/Favorite Things
Welcome to my page! My name is Sherika Session and I will be teaching 5th grade self-contained at Heritage Rose Elementary for the 2020-2021 school year. I am from a small town in Jacksonville,TX. where I was born and raised. I attended all grade levels in Jacksonville and graduated from Jacksonville High School with honors. I went to college in Huntsville, TX. where I attended Sam Houston State University and earned my undergraduate degree in Business Administration. I worked in that field for a little while then switched gears and started my career in education. I am currently working on my Master's degree with my alma mater. Go Bearkats!
I have worked in education for the past six years. This new school year will begin my 7th year in education. I am so excited and a tad nervous at the same time about this school year. I have changed grade levels and subjects each year so I am constantly learning new things and ways to grow students. I started my journey with East Side Elementary for Jacksonville ISD in special education as full-time inclusion support while I worked on my alternative certification the first year. I chose to do two full years as inclusion support to gain as much experience as possible before starting my career as a classroom teacher. I moved on from East Side and went to work for Tyler ISD in Tyler, TX. at Jones Elementary School. I worked at Jones Elementary for three years. I made several changes throughout my time at Jones in support of the school. My first year I started with 1st grade self-contained then I was asked to move up to 5th grade math within the first three months of school. The following year I asked to make a change and tried 2nd grade self-contained. I was asked to move up with my students and do 3rd grade math for the following year. Each year was extremely successful and I built so many relationships with my students, parents, staff and community members.
This is my second school year with Heritage Rose Elementary. I taught 3rd grade self-contained my first year. I am excited about the new school year and I believe WE are going to set and achieve many goals in my virtual classroom, face-to-face classroom and for our campus. I believe in us and feel we are going to have an awesome school year! Go Mustangs!!!
