Ms. Sherril Cordell

After growing up semi-locally and later graduating from St. Helens High School, I started my secondary education at Portland State. My last year of college was spent at Concordia. In 1992 I was hired as a long term sub in a third grade classroom here at Grant Watts. The teacher decided to become a stay at home mom so I was able to complete the year. I continued to teach third grade for the next six years before I transferred to first grade, where I am still currently working. 

I have two children, Katie (22) who works as an Executive Recruiter and lives in Vancouver, and Scotty (18) who is a freshman at the University of Oregon. I live in Warren with my adorable little spoiled rotten 8 year old chihuahua, Mimi, and my long time SO, Jim, who also has two adult kids in college. Josh (26) is working on his masters in Denver, CO and Lexi (22) is a senior a Quinnepiac University in Hamdon, Connecticut with a softball scholarship studying health science.

I enjoy hiking, gardening, attending sporting events, socializing and eating out with friends, and reading when I can fit it in.
