Principal's Corner

Greetings ERHS Pioneers! 

picture of Ms. SorrellsI am Ms. C. E. Sorrells, daughter of Remell Sorrells and the late Calvin Sorrells, both longtime HCS/Chattanooga Public Schools educators. I am a Chattanooga native and a 1994 graduate of Brainerd High School. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Florida A & M University and a Master of Arts degree in School Administration from Gardner-Webb University. I am currently enrolled at Carson-Newman University, pursuing a doctorate in education.

I’ve been in education for twenty years with educational experiences in the areas of middle grades mathematics, elementary school administration, middle school administration, and high school administration. I began my career in Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System in Charlotte, NC in 1999 as a Math Teacher and advanced into Administration. I returned to Chattanooga in 2009 and served as an Assistant Principal at my Alma Mater, Brainerd High School. My first principalship was at Orchard Knob Middle School in 2011. I also served as principal at Tyner Middle Academy for the past four years.

I have participated actively in professional growth and development through the Tennessee Turnaround Principals Cohort; graduated with the first cohort from the Principal Leadership Academy sponsored by Hamilton County Department of Education, the Public Education Foundation, the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce, and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I have been trained by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) in the module Creating a High-Performance Learning Culture. I have also facilitated professional development for schools and school districts in the areas of classroom behavior management, instructional best practices, and school climate/culture. 

I am one of three managing members of Taylor-Made Consulting, LLC. I enjoy traveling, full figured fashion and modeling, and being of service in all that I do.
