I am thrilled to be teaching in your child’s first grade classroom next year. My name is Ms. Sara and if you haven’t met me before, allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. As long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for working with and teaching kids. I received my teaching degree in Minnesota and taught in the Minneapolis Public Schools for several years. I also had the privilege of homeschooling my own children for a few years, as well as the unique opportunity to help open up and teach at a preschool in Flagstaff. I have been part of the staff at Mountain School for the past five years. All of these teaching experiences have really helped me understand how children learn, plan for differences in learning styles, and how to prepare an engaging learning environment. I enjoy an organized hands-on classroom where we care for one another, have fun, and learn a lot!
In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, exploring new places, walking my dog, camping, decorating, and spending time with my family and friends. I am a wife to an amazing musical husband and a mom to three dearly loved children so I understand the relentless love a parent has for their child.
I am looking forward to meeting you and your child.
