My name is Lacey Sherman, and I’m so happy for another amazing year at Annunciation!
This is my sixth year at ACS and seventeenth year teaching. I graduated from Mississippi University for Women in 2003 with a B.S. in Elementary Education (K-8; Highly Qualified in English and History 7-12). I previously taught for eleven years in the Columbus Municipal School District (one year at Hunt Intermediate and eleven years at Lee Middle/Columbus Middle School). I feel that my middle school teaching experience allows me to prepare my fifth graders for what is to come in the next few years of their academic careers, and everything I do is done with that in mind. I enjoy the challenge of preparing my kids for a great, rigorous middle school experience with our top-notch middle school teachers.
I teach ELA (reading, English, spelling) and social studies, and my partner teacher, Mrs. Bergeron, teaches religion, math, and science. In ELA we will perfect our grammar and improve our writing, and we will read, read, read! We will read one novel in class per nine week period, as well as short stories, informational texts, and readers theaters. I enjoy incorporating art into our lessons through Arts Captivating Spirits. I believe that art can be used to enhance any lesson no matter the subject area, and I love seeing my kids express their creativity in different ways. Through Music Journaling we will delve deeper into our faith in God and relate song lyrics to our own lives and discuss how the messages of songs apply to our daily lives as Christians.
Thank you so much for entrusting me with your child’s education; I look forward to another awesome year of learning with my fifth graders!
Teacher: Morgan Bergeron
My name is Morgan Bergeron and I teach 5th grade math, science, and religion. This is my third year here at ACS, and my second year to teach 5th grade.
I am originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, where I attended the University of Louisiana and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, with an add-on in Elementary Education, certifying me from PreK-Fifth grade. My husband’s job brought us here to Columbus over the summer of 2017 and that’s when I found Annunciation.
In math, we will perfect our multiplying and dividing skills and use all four math operations with whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. I have been working with Mrs. Cooper to ensure that all of my students will be ready for middle school math. I struggled with math as a child, but it is now my favorite subject to teach. Since I struggled growing up, I now have the passion to help my own students love math and appreciate it more than I did.
In science, we will use the Nancy Larson Curriculum to cover a multitude of topics including Earth’s systems, forces and motion, astronomy, ecosystems, and interactions of matter.
In religion, we will learn about the Sacraments of the Catholic faith, while we also grow in prayer as we move throughout the liturgical year. One of my favorite things that I experience as a religion teacher, is watching my students grow in their relationship with Christ throughout the year. It is truly amazing and makes my heart so full!
It is my joy and passion to educate children, and having the opportunity to share my faith with them along the way is the biggest blessing. I am looking forward to another fantastic school year!
