Jim McSherry is a dedicated educator and Driver Education Supervisor at Brockton High School where he has been teaching students the rules of the road since 2009, and all facets of United States History since 1998. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the former Bridgewater State College and a Master’s degree in Teaching from its more recent iteration, Bridgewater State University.

  • Created new signage for Driver Education cars, and weatherproof banners for the BHS campus to promote the anti-texting program
  • Collaborated on new Student Driver signs on cars for added safety while driving with our students.
