Parent Teacher Power Point

  1. 1. Welcome to the classroom of Ms. Grace Sarah Grace Special Education Lifeskills
  2. 2. About Me My name is Sarah Grace. I graduated from Texas State University in August of 2010 with a Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies- All Level Special Education. My passions for learning, teaching and loving has lead me to this road. My purpose as your child’s teacher is for me to lead them in a way that they realize their worth, beauty, abilities and to open their minds to think for themselves, and to ask questions about everything they experience and observe. I want to spark a desire in them to love the world they live in, to love and respect all living forms, to appreciate beauty and wonder, and to set goals and dreams that they will never stop following and reaching for.
