Sarah Pehrson, Teacher

Hi! My name is Mrs. Sarah Pehrson. I grew up in Plymouth, NH, where I attended Calvary Christian School from K-4 through 12th grade. I grew up with an older brother and younger sister playing sports, working with family, and helping the church. I got saved when I was in 3rd grade, and I have been incredibly blessed by God in every way. In 2010, I attended West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, CA, where I studied Elementary Education & Bible. Currently, I live in Hotchkiss, CO, with my husband, Brandon, and our son, JD. I enjoy the outdoors and spending time with friends and family. I have been teaching and tutoring students for the past six years, and I am excited to make this coming school year my best year yet! I truly count it a privilege to be your child’s teacher this year!
