Ms. Sparrow

Hello!  My name is Mary Sparrow and I am thrilled to teach your Second Grader this year.  I was born here in Raleigh, and have lived here my entire life (I love it!).  I attended North Carolina State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Applied Nutrition Science, and a Master of Arts in Teaching.  When I’m not teaching, I enjoy being with my family (including my two dogs, Lila and Rusty), cheering on the N.C. State Wolfpack, and spending time outside.  I also coach cheerleading, and coaching is where I discovered my passion for teaching.  I found that nothing is more rewarding than helping children recognize their potential, which is what I strive to do for my students. I hope to “ignite the spark” in my students to have a love of learning through providing exciting and meaningful activities.  I believe that every situation is an opportunity for students to learn a valuable academic, social, or emotional skill, and recognize the importance of providing students with opportunities to develop those skills.  I can't wait to work with your family to support your child’s learning!
