Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! Welcome to 6th Grade Math!
My name is Sarah Sykes and this is my 7th year teaching Middle Grades Mathematics. I spent the first two years of my career in Cabarrus County Schools, taught in Iredell-Statesville Schools for one year, and am now entering my fourth year in Caldwell County Schools. As a Hudson Hornet I've spent 2.5 years teaching 7th grade, a semester teaching 8th grade, and this is my first year teaching 6th grade! I received my Bachelor's Degree from Appalachian State University in Middle Grades Education, concentrating in Mathematics and English Language Arts. I recently obtained my Master's Degree as a Curriculum Specialist from Appalachian State University as well!
I served as a co-advisor for the Unified Champions club in the 2019-2020 school year, and I look forward to picking that back up (as soon as we are allowed). If you have any questions about Unified Champions, please do not hesitate to contact me! I'm also looking forward to serving as the assistant coach for the volleyball team this school year.
When I'm not at school, my days are usually consumed with music, Netflix, and puppy snuggles. I thoroughly enjoy reading as well... whenever I can find the time to do so, haha! Some of my favorite books are the Harry Potter series (by J.K. Rowling), the Peregrine series (by Ranson Riggs), and Paper Towns (by John Green). You can often find me evaluating students' books and adding interesting titles to my Goodreads acount :)
Should you ever need to reach me, please do not hesitate to email me! I am usually quick to respond: firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to nerding out with you and your student(s) this year! :)
