Mrs. Sheri Askew

   Hi!  I am Sheri Askew and I am teaching ELA and Social Studies in 5th grade.  This is my 18th year of teaching.  I have taught in Maryland as well as here in North Carolina.  I have 3 children.  My son is in his first year of college and I also have 2 daughters that attend Johnston County Schools.  I am very excited to teach your children this year and look forward to getting to know them better!

   Please email me at any time if you have questions or concerns.  

   You will find that most of the information that you will need will be sent in the form of an email.  Your student will also be able to access a lot of resources that they need and will use in Google classroom.
