Hi, I'm Sarah! I am in my twelfth year of teaching. I taught kindergarten for five years and am in my seventh year of first. I love teaching the little ones and being a part of their beginning school experience! I am a 1:1 iPad teacher and love to incorporate anything technology into my classroom.
I am passionate about continuing my education and staying on top of best practices in teaching. I have two Master Degrees, one in Reading and one in School Leadership. I also have my National Board Certification in Early / Middle Childhood Reading.
I grew up in central Indiana and met my husband when we were in college at Arizona State University. He is originally from Chicago, so that is where we are living now! My son, Leo, was born on May 5, 2016. His arrival was long anticipated by us, and we could not be more thrilled with everything he has brought to our lives. When I am not teaching you will most likely find me running, shopping, or drinking coffee!
I opened my Teachers pay Teachers store in October of 2014. Prior to that, I often shared resources I made for my classroom with others teachers while presenting or consulting. I realized that opening my own store gave me a larger platform to do that with. I tend to create resources for my first grade classroom that revolve around technology!
Instagram and Facebook, as they are the best places to find out about new resources, sales, and updates!
