Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Terrific Tiger Readers! My name is Sara Mills and I’m beyond excited to be part of the Ball’s Bluff Elementary team. This year will be my 14th year in education and my 6th year teaching what I love to teach most….READING!.
I was born and raised in Western New York (LET'S GO BUFFALO!!!), where I graduated from St. Bonaventure University with an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education/Special Education and a Master’s degree in Childhood Literacy. From there, I left the freezing cold winters and started my teaching career in South Florida. I decided to move closer to New York (still trying to avoid the snow) after teaching 3rd grade for 4 years and planted my feet here in Loudoun. My husband and I moved to Lovettsville in 2016 and absolutely love raising our two children, Clara (4) and Charlie (2) there. You can find us bike riding around town or at the playground on a daily basis.
I look forward to working with students and families as we continue to grow together as a community of readers. Please drop in to the Literacy Lab to say ‘Hello’. Our door is always open!
