Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Sarah Chandler

I am so happy to be teaching your child this year! This is my second year teaching 4th grade at Sierra Vista, and I enjoy it greatly. Prior to this, I taught 2nd grade at Sierra Vista Elementary for 5 years, and before that was a substitue teacher for K-6 in Madera county as well as Central Unified School districts, so I visited many classrooms of many different ages. My Dad was also a teacher for many years, and inspired me to follow the same path.

I grew up in Fresno, and attended Fresno Pacific University, graduating in 2001 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing. Later, wanting more of a challenge, I decided to go back to school and enroll in the Fresno State ECE (Early Childhood Education) Program and graduated in 2008. I currently live in the Madera Ranchos with my husband and 3 dogs. I have grown stepchildren, and two step-grandchildren. We love travelling to the beach, hiking in nature, fishing, swimming, and golfing. In my spare time at the house, I also like to sew, bake cookies, and am an avid reader. 

Thank you for allowing me the privilege of teaching your child this year.
