Mrs. Sherril Pelli

I am looking forward to a great school year in 2021-2022. I'm excited to have my classroom filled with fresh smiling faces! This is my 6th year at Polenta Elementary, and my 3rd year teaching 3rd grade. I've also taught 4th grade here and in Beaufort, South Carolina. In my class, I especially value the skills of critical thinking, asking questions, developing a love for reading, and believing you can be successful. 

 I have lived in California, Florida, South Carolina and now North Carolina. I have a B.A. in Graphic Design and have been working in the field for over 26 years. About 10 years ago I returned to school and earned a Masters degree in Elementary Education and began teaching. I am happily married and have 2 children who both attend Appalachian State University. I enjoy reading, gardening, camping, hiking, scuba diving and playing with my 3 adorable cats. 

  • My class schedule will be posted as soon as it is finalized.

    Welcome Back Orientation for our class will be held August 19 from 5:30-7:00 PM in room 318. I hope to see everyone there!

    August 23 is the first day of school.
