Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sara Curran
I began teaching in District 308 in 2000. I have taught 4th grade at East View, The Wheatlands, and Homestead elementary schools during my teaching career. I have also served as a Gifted Education TOSA (instructional coach) at Fox Chase, Grande Park, Southbury, and Churchill elementary schools. I love working with the staff, students, and parents at District 308 schools.
I attended Eastern Illinois University in Charleston and graduated in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. Shortly thereafter, I received my middle school math endorsement. I earned a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais in 2007. In 2008, I became a National Board certified teacher as well. In 2013, I earned my administrative endorsement from Olivet Nazarene University. I attained my gifted teacher endorsements in 2014. In 2017, I earned a doctoral degree in curriculum and instruction at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb.
In addition to my regular school day activities, I enjoy serving on curricular, school improvement, and intervention team committees. I have also taught writing methods courses for the University of St. Francis in Joliet.
