Ms. Shari Sawyers
Hello, 3rd graders! I am thrilled to be your teacher this year! This is my 12th year to teach 3rd grade, but I have also taught 1st, 2nd, and 4th grades, as well as preschool, Sunday School, and piano lessons! This is my 19th year to teach in Allen. It's been very exciting to see students that were once in my class graduate from high school!
I am also a mom of 4 kids - 2 sons and 2 daughters! Jake, Katie, and Marcie are all out of high school now, and Daniel is a 2nd grader here at Chandler. I love being a mom and a teacher, but there is a lot more to me that you will get to know this year - just like there is so much I will get to know about you!
This year we will talk a lot about our favorite things as we brainstorm writing topics and look for books we want to read. Some of MY favorite things are Starbucks coffee, Mexican food, Disney movies, jigsaw puzzles, and BOOKS. My favorite thing to do when I get to sit down is read a book! I have read a lot of kids' books too, so that I can help my students find the right books that they will enjoy! I also listen to audiobooks when I take a walk or clean my house. I love all kinds of books, and one of my goals this year is to help each of my students find books that they love!
I also really love playing with technology, games, and apps, so I am excited to be your virtual teacher - we will explore and learn using lots of great tools this year. This will be new and different for all of us, so a class goal will be to learn from our mistakes and keep going! I believe that mistakes and failure are part of learning and being human. We will give one another grace and will work together to continue learning. I'm positive this will be a fantastic and fun year!
