Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Sarah Ragan

Welcome to Fifth Grade! This is my fifth year being a part of the Cardinal Ridge Elementary School Community! I was born and raised in Altoona, Pennsylvania. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2004, where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I moved to Virginia and obtained a fifth grade teaching position in Culpeper County. After several years, I moved to Fauquier County where I continued to teach fifth grade for many years. During this time, I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University and have earned certification as both a Reading Specialist and an ESOL Specialist. 

I currently live in Warrenton with my two children Owen and Rory. Outside of school, I enjoy traveling to new places and spending time with my children and two dogs (Reese & Gigi). I also love to collect antique jewelry and visit my family in Pennsylvania. 

I am looking forward to a great year full of growth and learning!
