My name is Mrs. Yvonne Cherry (pronounced uhh-VON), and I am so excited to be your kindergarten teacher this year! This will be my second year teaching kindergarten at Highland. Kindergarten is so fun, and I can't wait to get started! Above is a picture of our kindergarten team. I'm the one on the right!
I grew up in a very small, rural town in Pennsylvania called Middleburg (hometown of Middleswarth Potato Chips!). When I say small, I mean the cows outnumber the people, and we only have one stoplight! I graduated from Midd-West High School (Go Mustangs!) in 2008. All throughout high school I was a member of the field hockey team. Field hockey is still one of my passions, and I love to play whenver I get a chance!
After high school I attended Eastern University where I graduated in 2012 with a degree in Elementary Education. I continued to play field hockey for all four years at Eastern, and I loved every second of it!
In 2017, I married Mr. Cherry, and we live in Mechanicsburg. Mr. Cherry and I met at Midd-West High, where we both attended. We love to go kayaking and fishing together. He may tell you that he's the better fisherman, but I still say that I can catch more fish!
The beach is my happy place, which is why I love the nautical theme in our classroom! I try to go to the beach at least once a year. My goal is to own a beach house someday and spend my summers there!
I can't wait to get to know each of you this year and learn about all of your favorite things!
(my first day of Kindergarten, many years ago!)
