Welcome to 2nd Grade!
Greetings students and parents! I am so excited to be starting a new school year with you. My name is Sara Strickland and i'm a 2012 graduate of Valparaiso University. I graduated with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and i'm currently working on getting my masters degree.
