    About Ms. Elliott
     

       My name is Sarah Elliott, and I am excited to join you on your educational journey this year in 1st grade. I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised in Scotland and moved to Tempe, Arizona when I was 10. I attended ASU and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education along with my Reading Endorsement. After graduating from ASU, I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from NAU. This is my 12th year teaching and my 9th year with Kyrene. Before coming to Kyrene, I taught in the Tempe Elementary School District.

       I have been married to my husband, Tommy for 10 years. Mr. E is a high school PE teacher for the PUHSD so as you can imagine, between the two of us, we have some very interesting dinner conversations. We have two daughters, Maddy and Alex. Maddy is a fourth grader and Alex just turned two at the beginning of August. Poor Mr. E is surrounded by girls!

       As an educator, I believe that one never stops learning. I continue to take various level courses to refine my teaching craft. When I am not at home with my family, I am working on my own professional development so I can meet all of the needs of my diverse learners.

       I have a very strong commitment to helping students become successful learners in all content areas. I love watching each student grow academically and socially throughout the course of the year. I believe that each child is unique and it is my job to foster their love of learning while pulling from their strengths. I am looking forward to collaborating with you all this year. First grade is going to be GREAT!
