Mrs. Sherman was my daughter Noells teacher for 3rd and 4th grade and is still her favorite teacher today .. 7 years later. She had a way of making every child feel special and had a fabulous sense of humor. She was a treasure to teaching.

My daughter was incredibly lucky to have Tammy for her 4th and 5th grade at Swanson Elementary. Tammy was an extraordinary teacher. The best of the best. We were so blessed to have had her in our lives. My deepest condolences to the Sherman family.

I will never forget how much I adored Mrs. Sherman as my daughter's teacher. Her love and passion for teaching shone through. I was astounded when I figured out that it was her first year teaching. I rarely requested teachers for my kids, but Mrs. Sherman was one I was willing to fight for. Her passion for teaching spilled over to her professionalism. I was happy to call her a colleague as well. A good leader lifts up those around them. That is what Tammy did. She was an inspiration to us all. The world was a better place because of her. Thank-you for sharing her with so many of us. I hope in the darkness of your grief, her spark will shine through to you. She was a light.
