    I hope you enjoyed the summer break. 
    I'll see you online for ESL classes this Fall. 
    I hope we can return to CALEY ELEMENTARY soon!

    I have been teaching ESL at Upper Merion for over 7 years, primarily in Caley Elementary. But I have been teaching in the district for several years as a substitute teacher and as a one-on-one instructional aide (at the Middle School). Before that I taught in a private school for two years. Back in 2007, part of my student teaching experience was in 4th grade at Candlebrook Elementary and the other half was in an ESL classroom in Methacton school district. I also tutor students privately (contact me if interested).


    I spend my time outside of school with my nine-year-old daughter, who's also a Caley student! We love to play silly games, eat ice cream, and take trips. I am from New Jersey; so, going “down the shore” is my favorite summer pastime. In my spare time, I like to crochet, do crafts, and learn Latin dances such as Salsa, Bachata, and Cha Cha!

    My teaching schedule is different each day. The best way to reach me is by email:  ksawyer@umasd.org. I check email before school and at the end of the day. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or needs. 

    I look forward to working with the Caley students this 2020-2021 school year.
    As we partner as family and teacher, together we can help your child be a successful student.
