Lakeview Middle School’s Grissom Named The Colony Chamber of Commerce/DATCU Credit Union December Teacher of the Month

Grissom is fourth honoree of 2019-2020 school year.

LMS1 Sherry Grissom of Lakeview Middle School has been selected as The Colony Chamber of Commerce/DATCU Credit Union December Teacher of the Month – the fourth honoree of the 2019-2020 school year.

Grissom, who teachers Family and Consumer Sciences, was honored because of her dedication and energy given each day to her students and LMS. She exemplifies Lewisville ISD’s cornerstones of Student Learning and Student Experience by providing engaging, meaningful and relevant opportunities for students.

Grissom is described as the heartbeat of LMS. She always makes sure students and staff are cared for. Not only do she provide unique learning experiences for students inside the classroom, but she consistently shows them the “Lakeview Way” with a commitment to servant leadership out in the community. It is no surprise she was selected as the Chamber’s December Teacher of the Month.

“It is a wonderful feeling to be named Teacher of the Month,” Grissom said. “I am so appreciative that the Chamber recognizes what all teachers do and the hard work we put in. I work with an amazing staff and awesome principal. I could not have won this award without them. They make me a better person and teacher.”

LMS3 Grissom was honored with the award, which is sponsored by DATCU Credit Union, on Dec. 19 at the Chamber’s Holiday Luncheon at The Colony City Hall Annex. DATCU Community Relations Coordinator Mary Jacoby and the Chamber’s Board President David Peerson made the presentation.

Grissom was joined at the event by her husband, Brad, and LMS Principal Beri Deister.
