Mrs. Sara Blair
I am thrilled to be teaching at Bangert! My husband Michael, our dog Yoda and I moved down here in July 2017. We have 4 children: EJ (24), Andrew (23), Kayla (19) and Tyler (18). EJ lives in Hartford, CT, and Andrew lives in Albuquerque, NM. Kayla is a junior at UMASS Amherst, and Tyler is a freshman at the University of Vermont.
While this is my second year teaching 5th grade, I taught 6th grade up in New Hampshire. In NH, 6th grade is still elementary school, so I am used to teaching all of the disciplines. I am looking foward to sharing my love of teaching with students here at Bangert.
Part of my philosopy of teaching is creating a community of learners who feel safe sharing what they notice about the subjects we are learning. When students are able to share in a safe environment, we learn from one another. I look forward to fostering this community feeling in my classroom this year.
We will be part of the mindfulness program going on throughout the district this year. I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned with the students!
