Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Sarah Knott
I am extremely excited to be working with your child this year! We have so many wonderful things to learn! Teaching is my passion. I have been teaching at Ballentine for twleve years in second and third grades. Ballentine is like home to me, because my boys were here first. My younger son was in the first class of kindergarten Fireflies when the building was brand new. My older son attended fifth grade the first year. I was born and raised in North Carolina, but have lived in HI and TX due to my husband's Army career. While in TX, I attended the University of Texas at El Paso and graduated with a Chemistry degree. Once my boys were in school, I was a substitute in Wake County for three years before attending Campbell University for my teaching certification and Masters in Elementary Education. Fuquay Varina has been my home for about twenty-one years. I live with my husband David and our Sprocker (Springer and Cocker) Spaniel Granite. David and I have been married for 30 years. Our 25 year old son Garrett lives next door. Cameron, our 20 year old son, is proudly serving in the US Army and is stationed in GA. In my free time, I love reading, cooking, and spending time with my family.
