My name is Sarah Parrish and I am very excited for my third year at Tuckahoe! I am originally from Lynchburg, Virginia. I graduated from the University of Virginia with my Bachelor’s degree and Master of Teaching degree. I began my career teaching first grade in a dual-language program in Alexandria. I then moved to Falls Church City where I taught second grade for several years. As a classroom teacher, I quickly discovered my passion for teaching literacy. I earned my Reading Specialist certificate from the University of Virginia and have enjoyed being in a Reading Specialist role ever since. I work with teachers and students in kindergarten through fifth grade. My goal is to help all students become confident, engaged readers and writers! I live in McLean with my husband, our six month old daughter, and our two cats. I love to spend time with my family, go running, and read. I look forward to a fantastic year at Tuckahoe!
