Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Sarah Makowski, and I am excited to be teaching third grade this year. In my classroom, I focus on integrating technology and project based learning into the curriculum to give my students a way to explore their world using authentic 21st century skills. I love to watch students dive into great books and see mathematical thinking in action!
New Albany is my home. Although I was born and raised in Northern Kentucky, I moved to New Albany with my family when I was a junior in high school. After graduating from New Albany High School, I continued my education at THE Ohio State University where I received my Bachelors in Human Development and Family Sciences and Masters in Early Childhood Education. During my college years, I worked for NAPLS on the district technology team and at OSU as part of the Athletic Department IT team. I came back to the district I love as a third-grade teacher in 2016, and I am blessed to continue to work and live in such a vibrant and energetic community!
When I am not working, I love spending time with my family and friends. In my free time, I enjoy reading, singing, and working with technology. I volunteer with high school aged students on the weekends. In the fall, you can find me tuned into football games: I am a Buckeye fan and a Green Bay Packer fan!
