    Hello! My name is Sarah Seay (pronounced say) and I am overjoyed to be your child's third grade teacher! Meet the Teacher is Monday, July 18th, stay tuned for the time! Curriculum night is Wednesday, August 3rd. I look forward to meeting to discuss what third grade will hold!

    This will be my eighth year teaching and my sixth year in third grade. Third grade is a vital year for students. We transition from learning to read to reading to learn! Your child will be held to high expectations, both academically and behaviorally. I am confident we will see your student grow in exceptional ways!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I am originally from Illinois and moved to Arizona in 2010 for college at ASU. I attended Arizona State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude. Go Devils! From there, I actively attended professional development and grew my practice from mentors in the field. In 2018, I went back to ASU and obtained my masters in Educational Leadership. I love teaching kids, but also have a strong drive for teacher development. This year, we will have a student teacher, Miss Halter. She is joining us from NAU! 

    This will be my ninth year teaching. I taught 2nd grade for two years, and 3rd grade for five years in the Tempe School District. Last year, I made the transition to the Chandler school district, and I have truly enjoyed my time here at Tarwater! 

    Teaching and learning are two of my biggest passions in life. I never want to lose the feeling of being in a student's shoes! 

    My Educational Philosophy

    I recognize every child brings different strengths, motivations and needs to our classroom. When you enter our class, you will see state standards brought to life. Mathematicians, scientists, artists, writers, actors/actresses, are all being developed day in and day out. I believe creating innovative practices to teach state standards will hold a lasting impact on students' love of learning.
