Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sarah Guzauskas
After attending Waubonsee Community College, Sugar Grove, Ill., for two years, I continued my education at Aurora University, in Aurora, Ill. There I finished my studies and earned my bachelor’s degree in elementary education. After a couple of years of experience, I returned to school while teaching to earn my master’s degree. I attended the University of St. Francis, in Joliet, Ill., to complete this degree in teaching and learning with a concentration in best practices. My first teaching position was at St. Peter’s School in Aurora teaching fifth grade. I have been teaching fifth grade at Homestead Elementary since the fall of 2011.
I love learning from my students and working with them to make new discoveries about the world and ourselves. My high school history and Latin teachers opened the door to me becoming an educator through their models and support. I want to instill in my students the same passion they instilled in me. I look forward to that opportunity with my students this year.
