SARAH (LEAD TEACHER)

 Q: What year did you begin teaching at WNNS?

    A: 2012

Q: What was your favorite book when you were a child?

    A: A Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss holds a special place in my heart, too.

Q: What is your favorite children's book now?

    A: Where the Wild things Are by Maurice Sendak

Q: What motivates you as an educator? 

    A: As a teacher of very young children, I love that I can help to cultivate emotional intelligence and kindness. In the preschool years, children are developing an understanding of their own inner emotional life, and with that understanding comes a growing empathy for the feelings of others.  I believe this kind of education, especially early on, honestly creates a better world - so this job feels pretty special.
