Mrs. Sara Welcher

My name is Sara Welcher. This will be my 8th year of teaching Kindergarten.

I was born and raised in Iowa. I graduated in 2006 from Ashford University with my B.A. in Elementary Education.

Shortly after graduating I moved to Alaska. I subbed for the first 2 years and learned a lot of valuable information you just don’t learn in education classes! I was hired in 2008 and taught Kindergarten for 2 years before moving to Alabama.

July of 2010 my family and I moved to Athens. We have loved every minute of being a resident of Athens! I was hired in 2012 at Brookhill Elementary and have been blessed to still call it home.

I live on the West side of town with my husband Randy. We have 3 children; Drew 25, Daisy 20, Julie 18. We also have 2 female dogs; Roxy 2 yrs. (Rottweiler) and Tali 15 months (Boxer).
