Hello, my name is Sarah Sancken and I am the kindergarten teacher here at Gardner Grade School. I have been teaching for 9 wonderful years at GGS. I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a Special Education endorsement. My husband, Scott, and I have two sons who mean the world to us. Preston is 3 1/2 years old and Emerson is 1 1/2 year old. They are both very busy boys and keep me on my toes. We also have a black lab named Wilma and a cat named Mittens. Family and friends mean everything to me and I enjoy spending time with them. My hobbies are drawing, reading, and going boating. Teaching is my passion and I could not imagine myself anywhere else.
