Hello! My name is Sarah Buchan and I am one of the kindergarten teachers here at Jennings Elementary. Since I was in high school I have wanted to be a teacher and from the beginning of my college career I knew I wanted to teach kindergarten. I grew up in the Vancouver Washington area and attended college at Western Washington University in Bellingham. For my elementary student teaching experience I worked here in Colfax in kindergarten and fell in love with the town and I decided to move here permanently.
I am so excited to be teaching at such a wonderful school full of great teachers! I know that sending your student off to kindergarten can be a bitter sweet experience, especially when it is the first time. I want to create a space where parents feel comfortable discussing their concerns and coming up with solutions that benefit the student, the school, and the home. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns about your student’s kindergarten experience.
