Sarah says, "I am so excited that God has led me to KCS and look forward to working with all of the wonderful children in this community! I love learning and teaching all subjects, but I especially enjoy Science, Art, and Writing. In my classroom, I strive to develop a welcoming community in which we can laugh, learn, and explore what it means to serve the Lord alongside one another."
When Sarah is not at school, she loves to spend time with her husband Michael, friends, and the rest of her family. Sarah also enjoys baking, making crafts, playing board games, watching movies, and going outdoors to hike, ski, play sports, and swim.
