Sara White » Welcome!


Hello and welcome to third grade!  My name is Sara White, and I will be your child’s ELA/Social Studies teacher this school year.  Since your child will be spending the year learning with me, I would like to start off by telling you about myself!  I am a graduate of Hempfield Area High School and California University of PA, achieving a Master’s degree and certification in Elementary Education and Secondary English.  I was hired by Norwin in the fall of 2007 as a Substitute Teacher, and since then, I have worked at the Middle School, Hillcrest Intermediate, and Sunset Valley Elementary.  I was a first grade teacher here at Sheridan Terrace for two years; this fall marks my sixth year as a third grade teacher with Norwin.  I love teaching, and look forward to the many adventures we will have this year!

I want you to know that I take my career very seriously.  I treat each child that enters and leaves my room as though they are one of my own, and I always think of them as “my kiddos,” even after they have grown and graduated, as some of my kiddos already have.  I hope that we can work together for your child and his/her successes.  If there should ever come a time where you have a question about our class or have a concerning situation at home you feel you need to share, please email or call me to discuss.  ( OR 724-861-3025, ext. 1718)  Please remember that my priority each day is to my students.  I appreciate your consideration and patience as I try to respond to all questions/concerns, whether by phone or email, within 24-48 hours.

I am looking forward to an exciting year!

Mrs. White
