In her own words…

“Teaching is a calling. The person who accepts this calling must take on everything that came before, all that is happening now, and be aware of what is coming up in the future. Great teachers never stop learning or thinking they have arrived. They are constantly seeking knowledge so they can be the best in their field.”

In the words of others . . .

“Ms. Sermons’ quiet brand of service and commitment to curriculum and instruction has won her the respect of the students, parents and staff as both a formal and informal leader at Wilchester Elementary.”
– Rian Evans, Wilchester Elementary Principal 

“Lynn goes way beyond the required call of duty. Her dedication to teaching thrives on the challenge of making a difference in each of her student’s lives. She is a master teacher with the brightest and the weakest of her students.”
Nancy Mavergeorge, parent of two Wilchester Elementary children
