Hi there! My name is Sarah Ackerman and I have been teaching since 2012. I taught for 7 years in Gwinnett County at Margaret Winn Holt Elementary and J.G. Dyer Elementary. This is my 2nd year teaching in Oconee County at Malcom Bridge Elementary. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 5th grade. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from Georgia Gwinnett College. I also hold a Master’s Degree in Elementary Reading and Mathematics from Walden University. I am a gifted education and ESOL endorsed teacher and also have experience working with Special Education students.
I live in Watkinsville with my husband Bryan, our three children Gracie (16), Ben (7), Emma (2 months) along with our Irish Cream Golden Retriever, Sam. In my free time I enjoy reading books, taking pictures, relaxing on my back porch, and watching movies with my family.
I am excited to have your child in my class this year! I have a motto that I strongly believe forms the structure of my classroom: Learning for All, Whatever It Takes. My hope is for all of my students to become life-long learners and display a confidence which follows them throughout their lives.
