Teacher: Lacey Sherman
My name is Lacey Sherman, and I am very excited to begin another amazing year at Annunciation!
I graduated from Mississippi University for Women in 2003 with a degree in Elementary Education (K-8, highly qualified in English and History 7-12). This will be my sixteenth year teaching and my fifth year at ACS. I taught in the Columbus Municipal School District for eleven years (one year at Hunt Intermediate and ten years at Lee Middle/Columbus Middle School). I’m so thankful that God led me to ACS to share my enthusiasm and passion for teaching. I am truly blessed to be a part of this precious school family. I am a BIG reader, so we will READ READ READ this year! We will read novels in class together, but the kids will also practice independent reading. I will try to help my reluctant readers find books that interest them. I am also a huge believer in reading aloud to my students, so I will always have a read-aloud book going. I especially 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 am eager to see my kids express their creativity in many different ways. I will do several interdisciplinary lessons where I incorporate two or more subjects together to make the learning experience more memorable and enriching.
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 the songs apply to our daily lives as Christians. Thank you for entrusting me with your child’s education; I look forward to an awesome year of learning with my fifth graders! God bless!
Teacher: Morgan Bergeron
My name is Morgan Bergeron and I teach 5th grade math, science, and religion. This is my second year here at ACS, but my first 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. As a first year teacher, I was an Inclusion Teacher in PreK for the 2017-2018 school year.
Mrs. Sherman and I will be team teaching fifth grade. We are excited about this new dynamic in order to best meet the needs of our students. I will be teaching math, science, and religion, and Mrs. Sherman will be teaching ELA and Social Studies. 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. I think that because I struggled through it growing up, I now have the passion to help my own students love math and appreciate it more than I did. Through the Nancy Larson science curriculum, we will study the interactions of Earth’s systems, forces and motion, and tools and machines.
It is my joy and passion to educate children, and having the ability to teach religion and share my faith is the icing on the cake. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!
