"Elizabeth Mitchell Sherman, never married but devoted her life to teaching and administrative work in the Oakland public school system. A graduate of the Oakland High School in 1878, she taught at the Lafayette School in 1910-1913, was principal of the Dewey School in 1913-1916 and of the Jefferson School in 1916-1928. In this latter year she retired at the age of sixty-nine after having served her community for well over forty years. An excellent teacher, a strict but fair disciplinarian, an able administrator, she has not been forgotten and the elementary school at 5328 Brann Street near Mills College, built in 1958, bears her name as a memorial to her service."

Elizabeth is number 392 in the Sherman Directories, Volume One, Page 714. No additional information can be gleaned from her record there.
