Educate, Empower, Encourage
Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Sara Wheeler, and I am very excited to be teaching fourth grade this year! This is my second year at Lake Murray but my fifth year teaching! Last year I taught third grade at LMES, and I am extremely blessed to be looping with many of my students to fourth grade. I know we are going to have a great year, and I cannot wait to start the 2018-2019 school year and meet all of the new additions to our class! We truly do become a class family.
I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona with my parents and two siblings. Both of my parents were educators, so I’ve been in the classroom all my life. I moved to Flagstaff, Arizona to attend college and began my teaching career there. My husband and I met in Flagstaff and moved to South Carolina three years ago to be closer to his family. We love calling South Carolina home and enjoy the beach and any activity we can do outdoors. This summer we even got to ride in a hot air balloon!
I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ and completed my Montessori Training through the Sandhills Montessori Institute. I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Language and Literacy and will graduate in August of 2019. I am a great believer in being a life long learner, and I like to share my experiences as a student to encourage my own students to become life long learners themselves.
I can't wait to get this school year started!
