Welcome to Kennedy Elementary and to the third grade!  My name is Mrs. Sarah Rollins and this is my sixteenth year teaching in Livonia.  Previously, I have taught 3rd through 6th grade at Garfield Elementary, Riley Upper Elementary, and Cass Elementary.  I am very excited and eager to meet and work with all of you!

     I received my Bachelor’s of Science degree from Eastern Michigan University with a major in social studies and a minor in mathematics.  Also, I have a Master’s of Arts degree in reading from EMU. I currently hold the following certifications: Mathematics 6-8, Reading Specialist K-12, and Social Studies 6-8.

     I grew up in Livonia and attended Livonia Public Schools.  In my spare time I enjoy movies, reading, sports, traveling, photography, and hanging out with niece, Olivia and nephews, Zach, Jack, Ben and Henry.  Also, I have two cats, Leo and Brady. 

     Summer 2017 was an exciting one!  Right after school let out in June, my husband and I traveled to Washington D.C. to see our country’s monuments, historical landmarks and museums. We were fortunate enough to receive a tour of the White House and the Capitol Building thanks to Rep Debbie Dingell.  We even stepped foot on the House Floor!

     During the month of July and first week of August, I was given the opportunity to work at Camp Frost as the Teacher Leader.  We had 70 students from Garfield, Rosedale, and Johnson attend this summer.  The students had fun practicing their reading, writing, and math skills through a variety of activities.

     In August, we traveled to Paris and Amsterdam for our five year anniversary.  In Paris, we visited the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Louvre Museum to name a few.  It was amazing to see these famous places in person!  In Amsterdam, we went to the Anne Frank House and saw the Annex were she hid and wrote her now famous diary.  It was a very moving experience!

     Again, I am very excited and eager to meet and work with all of you this school year!  Go Kennedy Stars!
