Hello, my name is Sarah Guffey. I am from Kingsport, Tennessee, where I attended King University. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. While at King, I also received the Student Teacher of the Year Award and the Intermediate Spanish Award. I have been teaching for nine years, and am certified to teach K-6 in South Carolina. I am honored to have received the Teacher of the Year Award for the 2016-2017 school year. I am so excited to be teaching first grade! I am looking forward to helping my students problem solve, work collaboratively together, and set their own learning goals!
My entire life, I have always wanted to be a teacher. My goal as an educator is to instill a passion in my students to become lifelong learners. I want them to believe in themselves and know that I believe in them too. I also want to create a community of learners within my classroom where students work together and respect one another. I teach so children will believe in themselves and go after their dreams. I am looking forward to a great year together!
