Mrs. Sarah Orem
Hello and welcome to First Grade! We have an incredibly exciting and rewarding year in store for us. My name is Mrs. Sarah Orem and this will be my seventh year teaching, and sixth year at Zaharis Elementary School. My husband and I just returned from a year abroad teaching in San Jose, Costa Rica. It was certainly the most rewarding cultural experience we have had! I look forward to implementing some of my new learning with our class. In 2016 I completed my Master's program at Grand Canyon University but still remain loyal to my favorite alma mater, Arizona State. I enjoy being active and spending time outside with Mr. Orem and our dog, Maya. We love the desert and try to explore this beautiful state as much as possible. I love to read, hike, spend time at my crossfit gym, and most of all, teach! I am thrilled to be sharing a classroom with your child this school year and cannot wait to travel with this group on a learning adventure!
Hello parents and students,
My name is Miss Nicolette Call. I am currently a student teacher from Brigham Young University-Idaho, and will be receiving my teaching certificate in December! I am from Fort Collins, Colorado, but now call Arizona home. I have enjoyed playing basketball and volleyball since I was six years old. I also love anything outdoors, but mostly hiking and paddleboarding. I have loved children and wanted to be a teacher as long as I can remember. I have taught in special education, toddler, preschooler, kindergarten, and now 1st grade classrooms! I look forward to a great semester with you and your children!
