Sarah Bennett has been chosen as our December Employee of the Month. Sarah has been an English Language Arts teacher at Fern Ridge Middle School since August of 2017. Her favorite thing about teaching is working with the incredible students at FRMS. She tells us that middle school students make her laugh and their curiosity about the world is contagious. “Each day is different and brings new joys and challenges!” She currently teaches sixth and seventh grade language arts along with an art and cultural connections class at the middle school. She is one of the district mentors for new teaching staff and has previously led the FRMS literacy committee.
When she is outside of her classroom, Sarah likes to spend time with family and friends and work in her garden. She is an avid reader and writer and has been working on her own novel for two years! She aspires to be the next J.K. Rowling or John Grisham. Sarah is also a semi-pro skier, has spent time in St. Croix and her all time favorite hobby is roller-skating.
Sarah and her husband are the proud parents of two fur babies, one cat and one dog. She is also the proud step-mom to two adult children. Keenan, who is traveling the world and Jacobi, who is in college at Pioneer Pacific.
She tells us that she is inspired by people making a difference in our world, by music that makes her move, unique art, witty writers, delicious food and most of all…her mother.
