• Gateway Station Mr. Sherman

    My teaching career has been at Westford School. During that time, my wife and I raised three daughters (two of whom are teachers themselves now.)  I also own Two Black Sheep Farm in South Hero growing/marketing  organic vegetables.  Other passions include space sciences, rocket and model making, carpentry and anything British or Scottish.

    Fifth and Sixth Grade Science and Math

    Fifth and sixth grades are an exciting time for students. The two years in the Hogwarts Team represents a passage from elementary to middle school.  As the science and math teacher, I try to bring a passion for topics to students by using constructivist theory, process skills, and following the scientific method.  This is accomplished using a project-based model with Next-Gen Science Standards as a template for study.  Students collaborate in teams working on standards acquisition through this project work.  

    In maths, students grapple with study based on a workshop model.  This includes inquiry, group discussion, and daily practice on studied concepts. I regard myself as a learner too, and together we discover, investigate, and share ideas.  Our skills and math sophistication progresses through Bridges Math 5 and using Connected Math 6 math series. Student work is formatively assessed weekly providing students and parents with a portal view on Jumprope as well as having samples returned on Mondays.
