CONGRATULATIONS TO 2022 GOVERNER'S EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR FOR BURLINGTON COUNTY
Sarah Sherman has spent the last seven years at Rancocas Valley (RV) Regional High School and has made validating student voices an integral part of her pedagogy. Her founding of the RV Black Student Union has created a model for other south Jersey high schools that seek to develop their own groups to support and celebrate students of color. A self-described “newspaper geek,” Sarah is also passionate about journalism and advises RV’s student-run newspaper, which continues to grow through her efforts. Teaching writing is what Sarah enjoys most, and her experience as an expository writing instructor at Rutgers University continues to guide her work in the classroom and with college-bound students.
