Greg Sherman, teacher at Colome High School, was recently featured in a Mitchell Daily Republic special section honoring 2017 Teachers of the Year.
Sherman, who recently retired, taught 7-12 social studies.
He has taught school in Colome for 43 years.
Sherman said the one thing that he has enjoyed the most about teaching is the daily interaction with students. “Students are fun to interact with as they provide a daily challenge to myself and to every educator. I can honestly say I’ve never had a boring day teaching as no two days of teaching are exactly alike. Teacher-student interaction keeps me young, driven and excited to teach.
Supt. Ryan Orrock said “Sherman is one of those teachers that every student wants to have. He brings the passion into his teaching and holds them accountable for their learning. The biggest thing is that he is consistent and genuinely cares. That goes a long way with students.”
