Currently Sherri is teaching preschool at St. John's Lutheran School in Watertown. In 2003 Sherri was instrumental in starting the preschool program at St. John's and served as the first preschool teacher.  Sherri has been at St. John's for a total of 20 years and has mainly taught 3 and 4 year old preschool, along with two years of teaching kindergarten. Prior to coming to St. John's she was the director/preschool teacher at Mary Linsmeier school for 22 years.

Sherri graduated from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, with a B.S. in elementary education (K-8) and a minor in psychology  Upon her graduation from Carroll in 1975, Sherri received a call to teach Kindergarten at St. John's.  She taught Kindergarten for two years before marriage took her to Elkhorn, WI.

Sherri is a lifetime member of St. John's  (except for the two years in Elkhorn when she attended First Lutheran there)  She was baptized, confirmed, and married at St.John's.  She and her husband John have been married for 45 years.  They have two grown daughters and two granddaughters.  Sherri is looking forward to starting the next chapter of her life with a move to Oshkosh so she can be closer to her daughter's family and enjoy being a "near by" grandma.  She and John plan to do some biking, hiking, and traveling in their retirement.  

"God has truly blessed my time here at St. John's and while it is bittersweet to be leaving, I look forward to the plans that God has waiting for me.  It has been my pleasure to serve so many families over the years here at St. John's." - Sherri Damman
