Sherry Ward was born in New Jersey and has since lived in Kentucky and Minnesota before moving to the Nashville area. She holds a BA from Douglass College at Rutgers University. Her journey as an educator started in high school when her youth group leader’s wife, who worked at a Christian school, told her she would be a great teacher. This new idea not only led Sherry to teach second grade at New Life Christian School in NJ, but also to home educate five of her children for almost eighteen years. She is married to David and together they have 8 children; three of whom God has brought into their family’s life via adoption. Sherry and her family live in the Franklin area and are happy to be a part of the TCA family.
