Sarah McCarty-Petz
Kindergarten Teacher

Hello families! My name is Sarah McCarty, and I teach Kindergarten! I am a Colorado Native and I lived in South Florida for ten years. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree from Florida State University in Elementary Education and went on to receive my Master’s Degree in Education and Human Development with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education from CU Denver. I have been teaching in various roles for over 10 years, in both public and private school settings.

This year in our classroom, I will encourage all of the students to gain a strong sense of belonging and investment in our community. We will elevate one another and challenge each other to dig deeper, create, and think critically with our minds and our hearts. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening, drawing and painting, thrifting, finding new music, binge-watching Netflix, going to live theatre shows, and enjoying the beautiful Colorado landscape! Currently, I live in Thornton with my partner and our 3 dogs. I am so delighted to be a part of your child’s school journey and look forward to the wonderful year ahead of us!
