Ms. Sarah Bankert
I am excited to be starting my 9th year of teaching! This will be my 3rd year teaching 5th grade! I grew up just a few minutes down the road in Apex. I attend all WCPSS school as a child: Apex Elementary, Apex Middle, and Apex High School! Go Cougars! Upon graduation from high school, I attended Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. One reason I chose ASU was for the cold winters. I LOVE snow! I will be the first one outside when the snow starts to fall. I first worked for three years in Chatham County Schools as a 1st grade teacher. After my first semester teaching, I enrolled at Meredith College to earn my Masters degree in Education while continuing to teach first grade. Following my years in first grade, I taught 4th and 5th grade at Morrisville Elementary for four years.
When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my niece and nephew! I love day trips to the beach, relaxing at the pool, or visiting the lake.
I look forward to meeting all of you and having a fantastic year in 5th grade!
