Congratulations to our Lee County Teacher of the Week, Ms. Sherry Grello, from Lee Early College. Ms. Grello was recognized as her school’s 2016-17 Teacher of the Year and is admired for being both an exceptional classroom teacher, and an educator who is focused on the entire student. She earns high marks for creating exciting and challenging lessons that encourage critical thinking; but balancing those efforts with allowing her students to reflect on what they’ve learned and how to apply it.
Ms. Grello teaches Earth & Environmental Science, as well as ACT Prep. She has a very diverse educational background that includes a Bachelors of Science in Geology and Masters degrees in Geology and Secondary Education from SUNY-Cortland, as well as an AA in Fashion Art & Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and degrees from Liberty University in Pastoral Counseling and Theology. In her spare time, Ms. Grello enjoys playing her guitar, writing songs, gardening and photography.
