Hello, my name is Sara Semple and this is my 6th year teaching here at Seven Oaks and 3rd year teaching 5th grade. This is now my 16th year of teaching, and I believe it is important to not only teach my students the academic skills they need for future success, but how to function in a rapidly changing world and society as well. To enable my students to reach success, I feel a team effort is needed. It is important to me that I am able to build strong positive relationships with not only my students but their parents and guardians as well, so we can work together as a collaborative team working towards success. I have 3 children of my own, Calista, who is 22 and currently living in Tallahassee, Ethan, a senior this year at Irmo High School, and Aubrey who is entering 9th grade. In my spare time I love reading, spending time with my family,cooking with my stepdaughter, playing with our dog Biscuit and our new kitten Sox, and of course cheering on the Clemson Tigers. I look forward to this year and the new opportunities the change in instructional tools and technology will bring.
