Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sarah Saldana
Welcome to fifth grade! After receiving my bachelor’s degree from Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, in 2004, I taught in Woodridge, Ill., for three years. During this time, I also taught a summer reading clinic and jumpstart program for struggling readers. I completed my master’s degree in March 2008, which taught me a lot about myself and my teaching. I have also taught at Chicago’s Northwestern University’s gifted program for elementary students on Saturdays and during the summer.
I have been teaching at Churchill Elementary School since 2011, and I am extremely excited for the upcoming school year. I began substitute teaching in District 308 and filled two leave positions at Homestead and Fox Chase elementary schools. I have found this to be a wonderful community to both live and teach in. Fifth grade is an exciting year, and I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child. I know we will have a great year!
