Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sara Weber
Welcome to fifth grade!
I attended Illinois State University, Urbana-Champaign, where I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education, with middle school endorsements in reading and social sciences. I received my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from National Louis University, Chicago. I began my teaching career in District 204 at White Eagle and Steck elementary schools. While there I was a teaching assistant and fourth-grade teacher. In 2005 I came to Homestead and have taught both fourth and fifth grade here.
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t want to be a teacher. I had fabulous third and fifth grade teachers who really helped me love learning. They inspired me, and I hope that I inspire my students. I love working with children to help them reach their dreams through their education. I believe in sharing my love for learning with my students and giving them time to share what they are learning with me. I am looking forward to a great fifth-grade year.
