    I have been teaching ESL at Upper Merion for over 4 years, primarily in Caley Elementary. But I have been teaching in the district for several years as a one-on-one instructional aide at UM Middle School and as a substitute teacher throughout the district. 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 at Arcola Intermediate School. I also tutor students privately (contact me if interested).


    I spend all of my time outside of school with my seven-year-old daughter, who's also a Caley student! We love to play silly games, do crafts, 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 Merengue!

    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 your child this 2018-2019 school year. As we partner as family and teacher, together we can help your child be a successful student.
