Teacher of the Year 2023



Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Sarah Barnum

Philosophy of Education: My teaching philosophy has multiple facets to it. The first and most important is to build relationships with students, which is key to teaching the whole child, creating relevant lessons, and building engagement. Secondly, I believe it is necessary to bring diversity into each unit and lesson I teach. Literature rich in culture and different perspectives is necessary in the English classroom and vital to teaching not only content but building empathy and compassion. Finally, I believe that every student has the ability to reach high expectations and make growth throughout the year.
