Welcome to fourth grade! My name is Sarah Nichols and I will be teaching ELAR for my second year at Springtown Elementary School. This is the start of my eleventh year teaching and am excited to be teaching fourth grade again. This is by far my favorite grade to work with and teach your students. I am originally from Orange County, California where my family still live out there. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton and moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where I met my husband Brandon, who I've been married to for almost 9 years. Brandon works on F-35 airplanes for Lockheed Martin. We have two children, Raegan who is 7 and Blake who is almost 5. We moved to Texas last July and love it. I've known I've wanted to be a teacher for as long as I can remember and love my job and your students will see that when they are in my class. I tend to get excited and loud and talk really fast when I teach, so your student may come  home and tell you about their fun and crazy ELAR teacher!
