Welcome to 2nd grade! Hello, my name is Sarah Osborne, and I have been teaching 2nd grade at CKS since 2012. I am a Nashville native and graduate of Vanderbilt University. I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and my Masters in Education with a focus on learning and instruction. I have had a passion for learning since I was a young child and look forward to sharing that with your child. My classroom is an energetic, positive, and supportive place for children to learn and grow. I believe in providing educational experiences that help students to grow intellectually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually. Second grade is a sacramental year and it is such a joy to help students deepen their faith as they prepare for First Reconciliation and First Communion. In order to create a classroom community grounded in respect and trust, we begin each day with a morning meeting. This time helps students to build social skills and self-confidence.

It also involves movement which is a passion of mine. I am a certified kids’ yoga teacher and I use this both in the classroom and during after-school programs to teach children how to use movement, mindfulness, and breathwork to strengthen both their minds and bodies.

I believe in using technology to both engage students and further their learning while also balancing the importance of building solid foundational skills in reading, writing, and math that are necessary for future success. Parents are the primary educators of their children so I look forward to creating a partnership in your child’s education this year.
