Mr Sherrow graduated with a BA in French and minor in Spanish in 2008, going on to earn a MS in Secondary Education from UAlbany in 2009. He participated in the university's study abroad program in the Dominican Republic and spent a summer in Quebec at the Université Laval thanks to a scholarship from the SPFFA (Société des Professeurs Français et Francophones d' Amérique). Following graduation, he moved to Maryland where he is currently teaching French and Spanish in a middle school in the Howard County Public Schools.
In reflecting on his time at UAlbany, Tom says, “I think the variety of courses offered gave me a well-rounded education. The familiarity between faculty and students helped create a sense of community. I was fortunate enough to take courses in multiple languages at UAlbany and take advantage of study abroad programs. These opportunities gave me real-world cultural experiences that I can now share with my students.”
