Mrs. Sherril Pelli

I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina, and have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I am excited to be teaching 3rd grade this year. This is my 4th year teaching at Polenta Elementary School. Before teaching at Polenta I taught in beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina. This will be a great year! Our greatest focus for the year will be becoming better readers. The only way to become a strong reader is to spend plenty of time reading. We will be working toward the goal of 45 minutes of sustained independent reading!
