Hi, my name is Sara Ward, and I am a 4th grade teacher. I have been teaching in Aurora Public Schools for 3 years. Before coming to Edna and John W. Mosley P-8 last year, I taught 3rd and 4th grades at Century Elementary for two years and 2nd and 3rd grades in the Fountain Fort Carson School District near Colorado Springs for 10 years. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two beautiful daughters, traveling, and hanging out with our family and friends. The thing I am most excited about for the 2016-2017 school year is getting to know my students and watching them grow! My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by building relationships with my students and their families, teaching my students how to be resilient in a variety of challenging situations, and creating opportunities for my class to engage themselves in meaningful learning everyday. My community needs me to do my job.
