• Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year, my name is Sarah Swearingen and I will be your student's 5th grade teacher. This will be my second year teaching in district 117, and having grown up in 117 I am thrilled to work with such amazing faculty, parents, and students. 


    I graduated from Illinois State University (GO Redbirds!) in 2017 with a bachelors in elementary education with endorsements in middle level math and social studies. Prior to coming to district 117 I taught 7th grade math. When I am not at school I am spending time with my family, friends or cat (Bumper) whether we are going on an adventure or trying a new taco place.  


    This year is going to be a success with the help of the 5th grade team, students, and support at home. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
