Sarah has been teaching kindergarten at St. John Lutheran School since her graduation in 2003. She has a great passion for this age level and loves seeing the growth and development of the students throughout the year. While working to provide an academic-based curriculum, she still provides the students with the social time and experiences they need. She also serves as assistant principal at St. John and would love to speak with you about your interest in our school.

Sarah, her husband, and their two children have enjoyed living in Waukegan on the shores of Lake Michigan. When she is not in the classroom, Sarah enjoys the beaches of Lake Michigan, visiting with her family and friends, and working on many Pinterest projects.
