Hi, my name is Sara Spala, and I am a 4th grade teacher. I am new to Aurora Public Schools this year. Before coming to the Edna and John W. Mosley P-8, I earned my B.A. from Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, and baking sweets. The thing I am most excited about for the 2015-16 school year is learning about my students’ unique strengths and interests! My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by creating a warm and inviting classroom environment, engaging students in meaningful learning, motivating students to strive for quality, and designing opportunities for students to grow as leaders. My community needs me to do my job.
