biography

Hello! My name is Sara Lee and I am so excited to be your child’s Head Start teacher. This is my twelfth year of teaching and fifth year at Boyd. OPS has been a major part of my life because before teaching I was a student from kindergarten to 12th grade in our wonderful school district. I graduated from UNO with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood. While teaching, I completed my Master's in Early Childhood through Concordia University.

There are so many rewarding parts about being an Early Childhood teacher, especially building relationships with the students at such a young age. I love watching them grow academically and socially. 

When I am not teaching, I find joy in spending time with my husband of ten years and my two boys, 5 and 7. You can catch us traveling, camping, on the baseball field, or on the nature trails. We absolutely love the outdoors.

Don't hesitate to email me with any questions or concerns you may have. The best way to reach me is by email at Sara.Lee@ops.org or through our Remind app in the classroom.
