Miss Sherry Rooks

Hospitality Program Director

Everything I have ever done has led me here, to this point, to teach hospitality and run the Hospitality Program. I am thrilled to be able to do so! I grew up in Indiana on my grandmother’s fishing lake and worked the restaurant she ran, serving lunch to all the farmers. In later years as she moved to Florida and began working in the hotel industry…so did I. I have worked restaurants, hotels, and spent quite a few years on one of the “World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”, Panama City Beach, Florida. And everything, literally everything I ever learned in the business is getting put to use here at Ball High…teaching our future industry leaders. As a mother of three, in my early 40’s I decided I needed to go to college, so that when my girls became old enough to attend, they couldn’t use the excuse that I never went! I was a stay at home mom and literally went back to school for my kids' sake. My education consist of a BS in Social Science, a Master’s in Education & a Master's in Instructional Design with Technology. And now, I am loving what I do, working with your students.
