Dani and her husband Erik have 3 children who are all now Sherman students. In addition to being a full-time mom, Dani enjoys volunteering at school, running & athletics, and working at their construction business. She can be found on the playground & in the office most days before and after school... make sure to introduce yourself! 

Carrie loves spending time with her husband D.J. & being mostly a full time mom since having youngest son, Austin. Although still working on call with what she considers her second family at the pulmonary office, she’s excited to grow her Sherman community family as well. Carries daughter Avery, started 3rd grade this year and is looking forward to a great year full of growth spiritually, mentally, & physically!

Dave and wife Jen have twin daughters in fourth grade this year at Sherman. Having just relocated last year from Austin, Texas, the family is enjoying the cooler weather! In Austin, Dave served as the PTA Treasurer and was a substitute teacher in the girls’ elementary school.

Jenny is in her fourth year as a Sherman parent and her second year on the PTSA Board. Heidi, Jenny’s oldest, is in third grade this year and will be joined by her brother, Sam, in the 2020-21 school year. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Pete, and her kids ... whatever the activity may be. Jenny taught second grade prior to having children and truly enjoys being in the school setting.

Samara and her husband, Aaron, have been Sherman parents since 2012 when their daughter, Isabella, joined the Sherman family. Isabella is now a seventh grader at Mason and their daughter, Gabby, is in third grade with Ms. Kadow. Samara enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with her family. This is Samara's first year as an officer on the PTSA Board and is excited to be a part of the team.

Laura and her husband, Durant, have been active Sherman parents since their son, Donovan, enrolled in kindergarten in 2013.  While Donovan started 6th grade at Mason this year, daughter Evie is still at Sherman in 3rd grade.  This is Laura's second year on the PTSA board and she looks forward to being a part of the continuing 'Sherman momentum' towards an enriched, educational experience for all families in our community.
