Hello and welcome.
Thank you for checking out our fifth and sixth grade class at Ripton Elementary School. I am proud to have been born and raised right here in the beautiful state of Vermont. I graduated from the University of Vermont with a bachelor's degree in elementary education. I have been teaching for over 15 years-- much more if you include coaching sports and leading clubs. I have taught in Flagstaff, AZ and in different parts of Vermont. I also spent two years in South Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer! I do my best to stay active and to stay healthy. In addition to biking, I also enjoy hiking, skiing, and basically adventuring anywhere outdoors.
When you come into our classroom, you'll hear my students refer to me as Ms. Sara. I believe strongly in knowing my students well and creating an environment of mutual respect in all interactions with them. I have a strong background in teaching students in various multi-age groups and competence in supporting the many different learning styles students have. I work hard to make learning creative, student-centered, and fun.
Please feel free to contact our school and come check out the awesome learning going on!
