“I am honored to receive Employee of the Year for OMS. This is my 8th year teaching, but this might be one of the most memorable ones. The challenges presented to me have made me more confident in my mastery of the content and ability to reach all students.”


The Oxford School District (OSD) is proud to recognize Oxford Middle School (OMS) teacher Sherilyn Coleman as our OMS Employee of the Year for 2019. Ms. Coleman helps make our district a great place to work and learn.

Here’s what OSD had to say about Ms. Coleman:

“Ms. Coleman works tirelessly to help our students who struggle in math. She always has a smile on her face, and her students love working with her. She builds excellent relationships with students and teachers. When she was needed to step in and help the Algebra classes during a teacher’s maternity leave, she rolled up her sleeves and went to work ensuring that those students received a quality year in math.”

“When they needed someone to step in and take on teaching an 8th grade math course during the teacher’s maternity leave, she stepped in and has done an amazing job.”

“She always steps in when she’s needed, and is always there for her kids. She truly cares about her students in and out of the classroom.”

“She does an outstanding job building relationships with our students who need help.”

“Ms. Coleman is always willing to go the extra mile for her students. In addition to covering classes for other teachers, Sherilyn has worked tirelessly to improve in her subject area, including becoming National Board certified and working toward her Ph.D. She often works through lunch, volunteers her free time, and joins committees, but still offers a friendly smile and a helping hand whenever she is needed. The students love her, and she makes a positive impact at OMS daily.”

“The kids absolutely love her, even those who do not have her!”

“Ms. Coleman goes above and beyond to reach all students and to help them in any way that she can.”

“She worked hard this year teaching for two classes and kept a great attitude while doing it.”

“Ms. Coleman takes a true interest in her students and their success.”

“Ms. Coleman always has a positive mindset towards her students. She believes in challenging them to perform at their highest levels.
Sherelyn is a go getter and a piece of joy in the day for those of us that interact with her. She is a jewel and a consummate professional.”

Congratulations, Ms. Coleman! You’re a great representative of the #ChargerNation.
