My name is Sarah Simone, and I am so excited to be teaching kindergarten while Mrs. Barrie is on leave. Last spring, I was helping in first grade at Sauganash, and I loved it! In the fall, I was a student teacher at Nettelhorst Elementary, in a second grade classroom. I have two daughters; Maddy is 14 and Emmy is 12. They attend Chicago Public Schools, and for many years I was busy volunteering at their schools, even co-chairing the annual Winter Party Fundraiser. Besides teaching, some of my favorite hobbies are reading, cooking and dancing. I am so excited for the upcoming year, especially getting to know my students!
