What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: Sierria Ware believes that every student is capable of achieving greatness, and reminds them daily that she is willing to do whatever it takes to ensure their success.
In addition to leading the English department, she also serves as the remediation and credit recovery coordinator for Hampton High School. She created Google Sites that host work from core and elective courses for each specific grading period.
