She is a graduate of Rivier University with a Masters of Education in Elementary Education and holds a K-8 New Hampshire Teacher Certification. She also possesses a Master of Business Administration from Rivier University along with a Bachelor of Science from Providence College. Busy Person!!!

Mrs. St. Lawrence was born and raised in Nashua, New Hampshire and has lived here all her life with some shorter stays in Glens Falls, New York and Merrimack, New Hampshire.  She enjoys time at the beach in Rye; shopping with her daughter, Sarah, a World Academy Alumna who is a sophomore in college; walking; eating out; and traveling; but most of all, spending time with her husband, daughter, family and friends.

As an educator Sherri envisions a customized, progressive, and collaborative educational program. Mrs. St. Lawrence’s philosophy balances and unifies the ideas of cooperation through authentic learning experiences in the classroom. She does this through hands- on classroom activities and labs that rely on teamwork. She also perceives Science to be fun and integrates many curriculum disciplines in order to appropriately and effectively advance her students. As a bi-monthly exercise Mrs. St. Lawrence has her students research Science Current Events. During this process students learn about state-of-the-art Science advances in our world. In this project students are also required to present their topics to their classmates using a Google Slides platform.  In this way, the whole class learns that “science is all around us” and students can become the teacher. As an educator Mrs. St. Lawrence’s teaching style strives to employ all of these above characteristics into her teachings. Through the use of these ideas, she hopes to make a continuing difference in her students’ lives. Learning and teaching is a lifelong process, one she does not take lightly. It has always been a dream to become a teacher and through this pursuit she hopes to inspire, contribute, and challenge the young minds of our future. Mrs. St. Lawrence sees her students as the best part of her classroom and she really enjoys hearing them ask questions, watching them grow, and knowing that they learn something new each day! What a fabulous human being and educator!!! We are grateful she shares our “World!”
