Sherry Birt was born and raised in Morgan, and has lived here her whole life, graduating from Morgan High School. She met her husband Adam when they worked together. They have been married for 26 years. Together they have five children. Three are currently in college with one in high school and the youngest in middle school. 

Birt worked for Morgan School District for seven years as a substitute, an aide and a skills teacher. She is currently in her second year of teaching since earning her degree from Western Governors University in Elementary Education, teaching science at Morgan Middle School. 

“I became a teacher because when my kids grew up and were all at the school, I wanted to be with them, so I got a job at Morgan Elementary School,” said Birt. “It didn't take long for me to realize that this is what I wanted to do.” 

Within three years of going back to school, she earned her degree and said she is now living her dream of being with her kids and husband, loving what she does. 

Birt said, “One of my favorite things about teaching is that I get to be with my family. But a close second is the students. The students in my classes are amazing. They are so smart and make teaching so much fun.” 

Birt often wonders what spare time is as she is trying to keep up with her family and being in her second year of teaching. However, she loves to spend time with her family watching movies, going on walks, kayaking, swimming and taking road trips. “As long as I am with my family I am having fun,” she said.
