Cheryl Tyrrell
Head Start Pre-Kindergarten Teacher
Marla Harris
Head Start Pre-Kindergarten Assistant
My name is Cheryl Tyrrell.  I have been a teacher at Wheatley for 5 years but have been in the Early Childhood field for over 25 years.  Currently, my wonderful assistant, Marla Harris, and I work in the inclusion classroom, ensuring that our students experience the love of learning in a safe and positive environment.  I have always enjoyed working with children and providing a good social/emotional and academic foundation to carry them through their academic journey.
I was born and raised in Washington state and have lived all over the country.  I graduated from Washington State University with a bachelors degree in Human Development and received my EC-4 certification from ACT Houston.  I have 2 wonderful children and 4 beautiful grandchildren.  When I'm not teaching, I love to spend time with my family, raise my dogs, read, and travel.
