Mrs. Sarah Bedore

 I hope everyone has a great summer.  I look forward to meeting my new students in August.


I grew up in Michigan, but have lived in NC for about 15 years.  I love it here!  I have taught 4th grade for 10 years and 2nd grade for 5 years right here at Dixon Road.      

My favorite books are The Lord of the Rings trilogy (I read them long before the movies, but I love the movies too).  

I love all subjects, but I have a passion for Reading and Writing.  I love watching students grow as readers and writers throughout the year.  My goal is to help students love reading and writing as much as I do.

I've been married for 12 years and have a 8 year old son named Owen. He will be in 3rd grade at Dixon in the Fall.  I also have 2 dogs, a cat, and 2 sugar gliders.

In my free time I enjoy scrapbooking, gardening, reading, writing, painting, shopping, and spending time with family and friends.
