  • Knoxville, TN (1888PressRelease) May 15, 2013 - Sherry Talisa Carr, Teacher Assistant at Jefferson County High School, has been selected as a VIP Member of the Covington Who's Who Executive and Professional Registry. The selection recognizes Sherry Talisa Carr's commitment to excellence in Special Education.

    Certified teacher assistant Sherry Talisa Carr began her career in education as a substitute teacher with Jefferson County in 1980. By the end of the year, she was hired as a teacher's assistant in the special education department. Three years later, she also became a certified bus driver, driving for the county.

    Working in an inclusion biology classroom, Ms. Carr helps monitor and work with students' individual as needed with a regular education teacher. She also works in a special educational classroom during first period, singing to students as a way to help them grasp certain concepts.

    Having suffered mild brain damage as a child, Ms. Carr remembers how much she enjoyed piano lessons, playing various other instruments, being in a band, and singing in a choir to keep her muscles from not getting tight. She is inspired everyday in the classroom by her mom, who was a big supporter of her early years growing up.

    "As young as I was, I knew I would be ok," Ms. Carr remembers. "I tried everything that a regular child would do and if we hit a wall, then we found something else that would help me. Now in education, I find myself trying to push my children in anything they want to be in life, due to what I've been able to do with mine."

    Ms. Carr plans to finalize a CD this upcoming June 2013 containing all her teacher songs for use in teaching other children with disabilities. She also plans to earn her special education degree in the near future and teach her own special education classroom.

    Ms. Carr is part of the South Jefferson Little League Challenger Baseball Team as a coach. She's been awarded with the title of Outstanding Transportation Employee for 2002-2003. She is a member of the Macedonia Baptist Church in Newport where she serves as ministry of music and also drives the church bus voluntarily.
