Meet the Teacher
My name is Sarah Watts and I am a third grade teacher at YPA. This year will be my fifth year teaching third grade and my fourth year at YPA. Growing up I loved school and grew to love learning. I hope to pass on a love of learning to each of my students! I love to do hands on activities and creative projects in the classroom. Students can learn so much from things they create! I am looking forward to an exciting school year!
