Mrs. Sara Kleiner

My husband, three children, and I live on three acres in Smithfield. We love spending time outdoors with our horses, dogs, and cats. Our oldest child Julie (23) graduated from USF, followed by Samuel (21) who is a senior Mechanical Engineering major at UCF, and Lauren (14) who is a freshman at Cleveland High School. We adopted Lauren from China when she was 28 months old. She spoke only Mandarin, which is where my love for dual language stems. I have taught in both private and public schools for the last 24 years. Although I am a Pennsylvania native, I also lived in Sarasota, Florida for several years where I taught third grade. My principal and I piloted the Lucy Caulkins reading and writing programs. Additionally, I have two bachelors degrees (in Business Marketing and Management, and Pediatric Nursing), and a Masters degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my School Administration Licensure. Mrs, Del Rio and I are a wonderful dual language team and plan everything together. Our two classes are considered one large family. The students know what to expect and have a set routine in both classes. I look forward to helping your children grow this year!
Some of my favorite things are coffee, white and milk chocolate, veggie chips, Bath and Body lotions, and Scentsy items. Our classroom wishlist includes hand sanitizer, clorox wipes, markers, colored dry erase markers, and items for our treasure box. Thank you kindly!
