Support Cheryl Leave a comment for Cheryl

Cheryl Coleman was nominated by her student.

Ms. Coleman teaches her students many things that go beyond the classroom. She taught her nominator to take responsibility for her actions, to be honest, and to be kind to everyone; even those who may not have been so nice. Ms. Coleman helped her feel safe and comfortable in her classroom, even helping her with other school subjects at times. She was always there for her, calming her down when she was angry or upset. 

"Ms. Coleman is so much more than just a normal teacher to me; she's like a second mum," the nominator said. "I know that I can count on her to help people when they need it. She is like a math genius."

Ms. Coleman gives her nominator advice on things that others teachers normally would not. The nominator has been in her class since seventh-grade, and cherishes their time together.

"I would never give her up for anyone," the nominator said. "Not a single person can replace Ms. Coleman. She is irreplaceable."

Ms. Coleman is one of a kind. She was one of the first people I met when I came to Bailey, and she made me feel welcome. She has a way of making you feel like you can accomplish anything, and I’m sure that’s one of the many reasons why her students and co-workers love her. She has the biggest heart for people and she truly cares about her students and their success inside and outside the classroom. She is definitely more than deserving of the title LifeChanger.

Prince McClinton Posted over a year ago

Ms.Coleman is a very kind hearted, caring individual that has always put her student's interest above her own. She is deserving not only as lifechanger of the year but teacher of the year. She tirelessly gives of herself to make sure each student soars! I highly recommend Ms. Coleman for the lifechanger of the year award!

Tifani Keith Posted over a year ago

Ms. Coleman truly leads her students. She does so much more than teach math. You can count on her to support her students’ activities outside the classroom. She encourages involvement. She keeps parents informed. My older student actually asks to go back to see her to say hi often. She makes that kind of impression on kids.

Jason Eifling Posted over a year ago

Mrs. Coleman is a willing professional that does what it takes to help her students succeed. She is willing to try new techniques and is often an advocate for students needing a voice. She is a LifeChanger.

Crystal Stone Posted over a year ago

Ms. Coleman was a great mentor and inspiration for me as a young teacher. She always listened to my concerns and creatively problem-solved any issues in the classroom. In her classroom, she provides an engaging, productive and positive culture, where people are inspired to collaborate and uplift each other. Her genuine love and devotion to her job and community is evident in everything she does. She's a light to so many and this is definitely an honor she deserves. ??

Christiane Williams Posted over a year ago

As a Parent of one of her student that is grateful my Son had the opportunity to experience her Teaching. He is currently a 10th Grader and she still is concern about his academics and social well being. Ms. Coleman is a great resource to our Children as they enter into each levels of Math and Life. I'm honor to write a few words of THANKS and hope she is awarded this well DESERVED nomination. Congratulations and Wishing You MANY MORE BLESSED YEARS. Again, THANK YOU FOR DEDICATION TO OUR CHILDREN.

Shawn Murin Posted over a year ago

My son, Landon Murin, thinks Mrs. Coleman is the best. He's had her for 7th and 8th grades for math and loves her. He thought it was so neat she moved up from 7th to 8th with her class. Seems like every couple of days he brings her up in conversation; from asking me if I know a song she plays during test time to something nice she may have said or done. Landon's never cared much for school and always had trouble with math. He hasn't dreaded school since starting at Bailey 2 years ago and understands math much better since having Mrs. Coleman. I can tell she's made a positive impact on Landon's learning and self-esteem. I believe he actually enjoys going to school now because over the summer he was asking how soon he got to go back. He said "she's the best math teacher in Mississippi and probably the whole United States." I'd say he thinks very highly of her. He also has said she's one one of his favorite teachers.

MRS. Coleman is the best Math teacher and life coach HANDS DOWNN??

Martha Gaines Posted over a year ago

My daughter has been at Bailey Magnet since 6th Grade & this has been the only year where she has been truly challenged to work beyond her potential thanks to Mrs. Coleman! I was a single parent up until July 2017 when I married my husband. Being single limited the amount of time I could adequately keep up with & check on my child's academic each semester. I would often not know how well she was progressing or falling behind until Progress Reports or Report cards were given out. Mrs. Coleman has truly helped build a bridge for me to be able to keep up with my child's progress before the end of the grding period! Her Remind App notifications not only remind my child, but remind me to check on my child! She has not only reminded us of assignments for her class, but important happenings around the school! I applaud Mrs. Coleman for all she does to not only help the students but the parents too! Thank you so much for all that you do! Our family truly appreciates teachers like you who go beyond teaching!

Randa Irwin Posted over a year ago

Miss Coleman goes above and beyond trying to help children. She has truly been an inspiration to my son and to me. We were thrilled that she would move up from 7th grade math to 8th grade so my son had her for two years. Truly a life changer!!!

Toywa Moore Posted over a year ago

A teacher that really cares about her students' education. During the school outage, she reached out just about everyday sending assignments and touching base so the kids would not be far behind. A rare thing indeed these days. I appreciate Ms. Coleman's hard work and diligence toward her students!

Vicki Gamble Posted over a year ago

I had the chance to meet Ms. Coleman, when my son was in her class, and now she can’t get rid of us!!!! Ms. Coleman was what the students of Bailey Middle school needed and needs, not only does Ms. Coleman know her math, but she loves what she does, and loves on her students. Ms. Coleman was always available to tutor her students as needed, talked to her students when they wanted to talk. My son would go to and. Coleman not only for math, but for any issues he was faced with when I couldn’t be reached. Ms. Coleman changed my sons way of thinking about math, he is now in the 11th grade and is doing good in his math class, and we owe it all to Ms. Coleman, for her hard work and dedication to students. (Her other children) we love you Ms. Coleman, you are definitely a life changer!!!

Falicia Edwards Posted over a year ago

Mrs. Coleman is an outstanding teacher! She's goes above and beyond for her students helping them excel inside and outside the classroom. She strives to make sure her students succeed. She once told me that her students are an extension of her! She believes how well they perform is, on some level, and indication of how well she performed. I am very appreciative of the educational and personal changes she's encouraged my child to make. Congratulations, Mrs. Coleman! We sincerely appreciate you.

Geneen Russell Posted over a year ago

I have had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Coleman for several years. She is an outstanding educator who cares about the well-being of her students. She works hard to ensure that the information that she provides is relevant and engaging. She constantly encourages the students to do their best as she goes above and beyond to ensure their success. We are so extremely blessed to have such a caring and hard working educator.

Logan Posted over a year ago

When I didn't have a math teacher the year I attended baily Mrs. Colman step in despite the circumstances and help me obtain a high score on my math and help me learn fluently in math and I am blessed to have had an amazing math teacher

Denese Sutton Posted over a year ago

I served as an Assistant Principal at Bailey APAC Middle School for three years where I worked with Mrs. Coleman who taught 7th grade Math sat the time. As an instructional leader, I both observed and evaluated her performance, but I appreciate what I witnessed along the journey as Mrs. Coleman’s reach spanned far outside her classroom. She has a gift for bringing people together as a team, and helping others through professional dialogue to focus on the individual needs of children that they can all experience success. She was instrumental in coordinating a targeted focus of interdisciplinary concepts where every child could learn in relevant ways, and she helped students to believe in themselves and in their capacity in the same light that she saw them. She always embraced the underdog, the difficult child, the arrogant child, the dejected child or the overlooked child, giving words of encouragement, special help, reasonable boundaries and never conceding defeat to their not meeting high expectations. It was always clear that she was the teacher who loved and believed in her students as a mother does for her own children, and she was always focused on results that not one of them would fail. Mrs. Coleman always found a way to accentuate the positives and communicate with parents every good thing about their chikd’s growth. No matter how many children have come and gone while under her wing, they always return to thank her for believing in them that they might realize their potential and become powerful productive people. Yes, she is a life changer and deserves to be recognized and celebrated as such.

Tekesia McClendon Posted over a year ago

She goes beyond what’s expected which makes her extraordinary! So proud to call her friend!

Shirley McClendon Posted over a year ago

I know Ms. Coleman as a friend and we attend the same church. I have hosted her love of teaching, her love of her students, her love of helping students and her love of God. Teaching is her gift from God and her gift to her students. Her persistence in reaching out to help in areas beyond her mathematical scope let the youth know how much she cares and that she is there for them. She is not a pushover. Stands firm against wrongdoing and disciplined students is a must. I believe they respect her because she is firm but caring. She is worthy of our commendations and award as Lifechanger of the Year!

Maleiah Thames Posted over a year ago

She gives us tools that we will use in life one day in the future for the rest of our life. And because of this she is very deserving of this award.

Ms Coleman is a very versatile women. she cares about the well-being of every single one of her student and will not leave one child behind.

Gabrielle Coates Posted over a year ago

Ms. Coleman is not only an 8th grade math teacher, but she's an inspiration and a motivator. I've had her as a math teacher my seventh grade year as well, and she's done nothing but encourage. Even though she gives tough love, she'll still have the backs of her students. She goes out here way to keep her students on track whether we're on break or just at home preparing for the next school day. All in all Ms. Coleman is great!!!!

Collin Gray Posted over a year ago

Ms.Coleman is very invested into her students and not only their education but the students themselves she is always teaching us valuable lessons about life and making sure that we will be prepared when we step into our adult lives.

I have been with Ms. Coleman for 2 years and she makes sure that everyone in the class knows the standard before she moves on in math class. She is also a great role model and a very nice teacher.

Laila Young Posted over a year ago

I agree, Ms Coleman should be nominated for life changer of the year. She leads the eighth grade very well and puts others before herself. She takes the needed steps to make a classroom productive and positive.

Tamerrah Donaldson Posted over a year ago

When I was in 7th grade Ms.Coleman would show motivational videos. And it seemed like she had a video for when I was feeling my lowest or thought or giving up. Ms.Coleman helped me get self-motivated and want the best for myself. She is a good teacher and I love her.

Essence Smith Posted over a year ago

Ms. Coleman one of the best teachers I've ever had. She answers any questions my fellow classmates and I have. She will stop to make sure that you understand everything being taught and she will walk you through the problem. Not only is she a good teacher but she's also a great mentor and a wonderful leader to all. She taught me in 7th grade and I was over joyed to hear that she would be my 8th grade teacher. I'm so grateful for such a nice and caring teacher. I wish she could be my high school teacher too. Ms. Coleman was my life changer and I think along with other people that she really deserves this award.

JaKenzi McDonald Posted over a year ago

Ms. Coleman is a very great teacher and she is a very helpful person when it comes to things other than just math.

Elizabeth Hawkins Posted over a year ago

Ms. Coleman is an awesome teacher! Though her "job" is to teach us, she succeeds the expectations. She genuinely cares about us as people not just students. She constantly inspires us to be our best selves and not let anyone deter us. She inspires us to be encouraging to others and she makes sure we keep the pressure on ourselves. I think she is so very deserving of this recognition.

John May Posted over a year ago

She's one of the best teachers I've ever had. She was my 7th grade math teacher and is now my 8th grade math teacher. She knows what needs to be done and helps us get it done in the best ways possible. She'd do her job much better if the students were to not talk as much and let her teach more. Most importantly to me, she's nice and kind. I was feeling a bit down one day and I asked her for a hug and she gave me one. I've had a lot of teachers, but she takes the cake for being one of the nicest and caring teachers I've ever had.

Holly Lloyd Posted over a year ago

Ms Coleman is a very strong leader. She always tries her best to make sure everyone knows what they need to know to excel.

Ms. Coleman is always there for her students whenever we need her. If we don't understand something in class she goes over it until we say we understand. She pushes us in the right direction and wants us to succeed ,and doesn't sugar coat anything. If we made a bad grade she tells us and make sure next time we get a better grade. If nobody has our back, she has it. This is the teacher everyone wish they had!

If someone was behind, we would stop and make sure they're caught up and with us. She has had a huge impact on all of the students she has taught including me, we would have been nothing without Mrs. Coleman. She honestly deserves more awards than she has been nominated for. Thank you Mrs. Coleman for being the awesome teacher you are.

Michelle Wells Posted over a year ago

I have known Cheryl for 19 years. She understands in order to lead, you must first learn to serve. She shows support for her students and parents far beyond her assigned work hours. She thinks of creative ways to teach her students. Often while passing her classroom, you will find her students engaged in activities that captures their attention in positive ways you would never imagine.. I consider Cheryl not only to be a co-worker, but a friend that is both honest and supporting. She is a team player and she teach her students to be team players. Without doubt Cheryl is worthy of this award, and I know it would be very much appreciated. She is that voice of reason. She is that light that shine through dark situations. She is the voice that encourages her students to rise and try again. She is the voice that tells her students that every day won't be perfect, but you must bring out the best in you each day. Lastly, she encourage her students to ask questions, and express themselves.

She has a heart of gold and love sharing it! Ms. Coleman is a life changer because she changes lives daily!!

Victor Ellis Posted over a year ago

Ms. Cheryl Coleman is an outstanding educator, mentor and champion of all students. Her passion is nurturing and working with struggling students who don't believe they have what it takes to be successful students. Her unbreakable drive, consistency and positive spirit are the motivating ingredients to her successful outcomes with struggling learners. Succinctly stated, our community is much better and civically stronger because it has added several productive members to the City of Jackson who once struggling, and had no hope of success if not for the herculean efforts of Ms. Cheryl Coleman, math teacher extraordinaire! What a powerful life-changer she is!!

Priscilla Myles Posted over a year ago

Congratulations Ms. Coleman! I have known Ms. Coleman thirteen years. She is a hard-working, diligent, motivated educator who strives to ensure that every child learns.

Mrs. Coleman is a wonderful teacher. Her teaching methods are really good and give a lot of information. She is a great person and really cares about teaching her students. She is the best teacher I have known in my career as a student. And that is why I think Mrs. Coleman deserves the Life Changing Nominee Award.

Ms. Coleman is an AMAZING teacher who has approved my math skills compared to 6th grade and I appreciate her. She repeatedly sends messages to inform us about our homework which is super helpful, because I forget the homework within an 1 hour, so I hope she gets nominated, because she deserves it.

Ms.Coleman is "THAT" teacher that every parent wants, every student needs, and what every teacher should be! She teachers ABOVE AND BEYOND and always make sure our children get the type of education that they deserve! Her ability to grab the minds of our children in a way which creates them to think beyond just the numbers are amazing! She puts in very hard work and expects the same back!! She is always there for questions, suggestions, and humbling words of encouragement to both parents and students. I can remember the kids ROARING WITH CHEERS???????????? when they found out that she would be teaching math for the eighth graders in the following year, seeing our kids excited about math touched my heart and showed me how much she meant to the students as well as the staff. The words thank you, awesome, great job, wonderful, genius,and phenomenal can only be used so many times so NOW is the time to thank her beyond words and this award should be that BIG THANK YOU THAT SHE DESERVES AND HAS CERTAINLY EARNED!

Mrs. Coleman is a sweet lady at heart with the charm of a flower bloomed with the right amount of sunlight. A perennial is how i see her she is purple to give her a color of royalty. She is looked upon by her students as a genuine human being. She blooms with other flowers helping her other staff members become more positive as well. A leader by herself she could lead a whole army just with her charm. Be in a room with her for a day you will come out with a newly learned lesson about life itself. She has a smile that reminds me of the solar system vibrant with different qualities and many more things to explore. She is truly a great teacher and person.

This is the second year Ms. Coleman has had my daughter in her class, when the years start I think I was more excited than my daughter when I seen Ms. Coleman’s name on her schedule!!!!!! What I love about Ms. Coleman is that she teachers her students on a level where they understand and she goes ABOVE AND SOME, the make sure they get it!!!!! She had such a humbling spirt and in today’s world children need that!!!!! I’m my opinion she’s the best teacher at Bailey!!!!

Marie brown Posted over a year ago

My child has had the opportunity to have her for two years. She is truly a great teacher. She goes above and beyond for students in making sure that they are successful. She is always willing to work extra to help after hours to make sure that skills are mastered. She is truly a blessing from God.

DeBroski Brown Posted over a year ago

Ms. Coleman is truly what this student has said. My son feels just as strong about Ms. Coleman. I know because she is the teacher he talks about the most & says she's the best teacher ever. I thank God for Ms. Coleman & her spirit of wanting to help as well as reach every child she comes in contact with.

Stephenie Morrisey Posted over a year ago

I agree with the nominator about Ms. Coleman -- she is a math genius, and more importantly she is people genius. As parent I have observed Ms. Coleman's dedication to her students. There are many wonderful teachers who arrive early and stay late to be available for students and parents. Ms. Coleman takes that to another level. The most recent example of her selfless giving and commitment to changing lives for the better at Bailey APAC is the daily and personalized communication to her Algebra I students and parents while our district was closed for a week due to a water crisis. She essentially taught via Remind and other technologies to keep her students on track. She was responsive day and night to questions and always positive because she truly values each one of her students and does not give up on any of them.

Ms Coleman is way way more then a life changers she is a LIFE SAVER! She not only send out million of texts for her class to inform the parents on what’s going on she informed the parents about what’s going on in their child others class as well. She is just PHENOMENAL!!! And she do answer your text no matter what time a day it is. We just love ?? her! Lois and Matthew Brewer
