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!
My name is Breanna Allen, and I am so excited to be able to work and learn from your students this semester! I grew up on my family farm in Monteview, Idaho. I spent summers driving a tractor, raising pigs for 4-H, and enjoying the sun with my friends and family. My parents taught me the value of hard work and perseverance. My family members are my very best friends. In my free time I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking, and hiking. Cameras make me happy and I love being able to capture special moments and beautiful landscapes through photography. I completed my coursework at BYU-Idaho for a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education and am here to complete my student teaching. I’m excited to spend my days with your energetic children. As one of the students said last week, “Zaharis is a fun place to learn!” I wholeheartedly agree.
