Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sherry Ann Puntai-Hay
Hello everyone! I am very excited that I am at Trailside Middle this year! I will be teaching Foundations of Algebra and Algebra 1. This is my 6th year teaching middle school. Prior to that, I taught elementary school in the Caribbean (Trinidad) for 12 years and then worked as a Data Analyst for 9 years. My undergraduate degree is in Computer Information Systems and my Masters degree is in Middle School Math Education.
I love teaching Math and I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with your children and to help them to cultivate a critical mindset. I want them to know that math can be fun and with effort comes rewards. I think it is very important to teach students to be good communicators and support them in their lifelong learning journey.
On a personal note, I live in Leesburg with my husband and son. We love traveling, spending time with family and friends, cooking and entertaining.
Looking forward to a great year!
