Hi, my name is Sherry Manley and I am one of the first grade teachers here at Juniata Elementary. I am a 1987 graduate of the Altoona Area High School and a 1992 graduate of Penn State University where I majored in Elementary Education and earned a minor in Psychology. I also earned my Master’s degree in Education from Saint Francis University in 2000. I have been employed with the Altoona Area School District for the past 22 years. I spent my first 14 years teaching first grade at Penn-Lincoln Elementary and then spent 5 years outside of the classroom working as an Early Literacy Instructional Coach and a Keystone Literacy Instructor until returning to the classroom for the past 3 years teaching first grade here at Juniata. I feel so fortunate to be working here at Juniata with such a fantastic team and amazing children!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tim, my four children: Tyler, C.J., Trevor, and Kaylynn, my dog, Alexis and my cat, Oreo.
