Sheri Roberts is an occupational/hand therapist who has been teaching post graduate students while practicing at Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia for 22 years. Twelve of the 22 years have included adult education. Sheri has dealt daily with those who are laden with illness, injury, and disability. She is well versed in the art of engaging her patients in activities with a goal of restoration or adaptation in mind. The inspiration for Live to Fly…was in response to her daughter Lucy’s request for her to make up a story about a bird. Her quest to find the most interesting and impressive bird led to the albatross as the only choice. Sheri maintains a website (www.handinmind.com) that promotes albatross information and preservation, as well as advertising an educational and entertaining albatross tour she frequently gives to Atlanta area schools and civic groups.
My favorite way to teach is the way in which I wish to learn. I use a kinesthetic, spatial and visual approach with a focus on creative art, and language to engage the student and accomplish my goals. Sitting still has never been my forte’, so I understand the challenges of maintaining the needed focus for learning!

This fun and interactive presentation is designed for kindergarteners through fifth graders who are interested in learning about the albatross.
