Sara Jernigan

I have been teaching middle school in the Arlington School District for 15 years. I teach 7th grade ELA in an inclusive and special class setting and have been collaborating with the most amazing co-teacher, Mrs. Jackson, for the last 9 years! We share a passion for creating a climate that is safe, encouraging, inspiring, and equitable for all students. Our teaching focuses on differentiating instruction based upon students' strengths, needs, and interests so that they can continue to grow as responsible learners, kind community members, and individuals who will be able to pursue their passions. I believe that family involvement is essential for the well-being and success of each child and am honored to work with you and your child this year. 

Please visit my Google Classroom page for all assignments, updates, and handouts. Students can log in with their school name and ID. For example, Jane Smith would be jsmith@acsdny.org and the password would be: s0followed by their school ID.

I am looking forward to an amazing year!
