COACH SHERRY SWANSON
I am 47 years young and have been married to the love of my life for 27 years! I am a mother of two wonderful grown children, Chassey and Tylor. I am also the grandmother of 3 beautiful girls, Cheyenne, Cara, and Callia!
I have been teaching for about 16 years, not including 4 years of substitute teaching. I have been teaching PE for the past 9 years. Although I have not always been a PE teacher, my love and passion for fitness has never come into question. I have over 30 years experience as a personal trainer/fitness coach and enjoy lifting weights. As a former competitive bodybuilder, I have learned the benefits of proper nutrition and exercise first hand. I also have a real passion for sports, particularly volleyball! I coach both girls' volleyball and track and love every minute of it!
Staying in shape is hard work, but the payoff is so much greater than the sacrifice! Now, let's get moving!

COACH JACOB HARRIS
Hello students! My name is Jacob Harris and I’m new to the physical education classroom. I have worked for Walker County Schools for 10 years. I have worked for Rossville Middle, LaFayette Middle and Saddle Ridge. I graduated from Ridgeland High school and also live in Walker County.
My beautiful wife, Staci, is also a teacher at Cherokee Ridge Elementary. We are blessed to have two children, Della and Drew, and will be adding another boy, Lincoln, in September. Della is 8 and is in the second grade at Cherokee Ridge. Drew is 6 and has started Kindergarten at Cherokee Ridge.
I am in my second year of teaching physical education standards, but I am not new to teaching or fitness. I played many sports while growing up. I enjoyed football, baseball, basketball and soccer, but I had a passion for wrestling. I was able to follow this passion and wrestled in college for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I have assisted coaching track with Coach Swanson and we taught together at LaFayette Middle. I have also coached wrestling, soccer and baseball. I am the wrestling coach and am currently assisting with coaching football.
