Mrs. Sarah McGowan
Welcome to 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies! I have a combined 13 years of teaching and subbing experience. My first teaching experience was in my home state of Minnesota (Go Vikes!) but Tucson has been my home for the past 20 years. I'm really excited to be back in the classroom full time. In my free time I ride my three horses and spend time with my family.
Defining Moment in Education
As a senior in high school I applied to and was selected for a class called Develpmental Psychology. Every Tuesday we traveled by bus to local middle school to teach 6th graders. I immediately fell in love with teaching and knew this is what I wanted to do after college.
Core Educational Beliefs
I believe every student can learn and grow each year. One of my goals is to foster that love of learning in each of my students. I like to set the bar high and encourage each of my students to strive to be the best they can be.
