Hi, my name is Sarah Oropeza, and I am a 5th grade teacher. I have been teaching in Aurora Public Schools for 8 years. Prior to working in Aurora, I taught in Las Vegas. I have taught 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my 2 young children and staying active. The thing I am most excited about for the 2016-17 school year is getting to know my new students! My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by building relationships with my students that allow me to push them to their highest potential academically. My community needs me to do my job.
