Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Sara Stenke

Hello! My name is Sara Stenke and this will be my second year teaching 1st grade at Abbot. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Science. Teaching is truly a passion of mine and I focus on building relationships in and out of the classroom. In my free time I love reading (I am always looking for good suggestions) and traveling. I work to bring both of these passions into my classroom to engage students and create an inclusive and enthusiastic learning environment. When I am not in the classroom you will often find me spending time in nature, I enjoy hiking and experiencing the world around me, exercising, or spending time with friends and family.


First grade is such a special year full of learning and growth, I am so privileged to be able to share that and encourage curiosity and fun! I am overjoyed to be working in the diverse and welcoming Abbot community.  Looking forward to a great year full of learning, fun, and memories!
