Mrs. Sherray Hawthorne (ELA RTI Specialist)
In May of 2002, I graduated from Coldspring-Oakhurst High School. After graduating high school, I continued my education at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. In December of 2007, I graduated from SHSU earning a Bachelors of Science degree in Kinesiology.
As soon as I graduated from college, I begun my career in education. I decided to return back to my alma mater, Coldspring-Oakhurst High School. At COHS, I coached all sports and taught Health along with Public Speaking for five years. After my fifth year, I started coaching and teaching at Coldspring-Oakhurst Lincoln Junior High for three years. Soon after, I started teaching 7th grade Writing. I fell in love with the subject area, and continued striving to increase my knowledge by taking advantage of multiple professional development opportunities.
As of today, I am now the ELA RTI (Response to Intervention) Specialist at Lincoln Junior High and starting my eleventh year. I am a dedicated and passionate advocate for education. I pride myself on equipping students with the necessary tools, resources, and knowledge to exceed their goals. I am deeply committed to improving children’s lives and continuously strives to lead by example.
