Sherrie Davis

Sherrie Davis, the newly appointed assistant principal and Title 1 interventionist at Union Elementary.

Like the principal shes serving with, Sherrie Davis, the newly appointed assistant principal and Title 1 interventionist at Union Elementary, is returning to the school she attended when she was elementary age. Even though both the principal, Kellie Dellinger, and Davis are new administrators to Union, Dellinger previously served as assistant principal at North Brook Elementary with Davis, who taught there for 13 years.

Growing up just a few miles from Union, Davis graduated from West Lincoln High School. She received her bachelors degree from UNC-Charlotte in elementary education and attended Gardner Webb University for a masters degree in administration. Davis now lives in Crouse.

This was such a great opportunity and its the best of both worlds being in this dual position,” she said. I can still work with the kids and get my foot in the door with administration. I love Kellies leadership abilities and I knew shed be a great mentor for me.

With her appointment, Davis hopes that shell be able to help continue the academic excellence that students at Union Elementary have achieved and to support teachers.

I feel like building relationships are whats important,” she said. Having that relationship with the students, their families and especially with the teachers. Making sure that they know that Im here for them and will support them.

While she was a student at Lincoln County Schools, there were many teachers who made an impact on Davis’ life and her decision to become an educator. 

There were so many teachers along the way who molded me,” she said. I knew in the back of my mind that I wanted to be able to give back and work with kids. I cant imagine doing anything else. I knew that I always wanted to be a teacher, I just wasnt sure what grade level but I fell in love with K-2. I love the foundation and building on it. First grade was where my heart was for so long.

Union Elementary, being a Title 1 school, receives federal funds to assist with meeting the students’ educational goals. As a Title 1 interventionist, Davis will be working with teachers and Dellinger to learn what skills the students need to be successful and that all their needs are met. 

Last week, Daviss daughter, Shelby, started the first grade at Union Elementary.

I talked to her and told her that mom went to school here so shes excited that shes able to come with me,” Davis said. I had her with me at North Brook during her first year in kindergarten.
