Mrs. Sarah Wilson is excited to begin her third year teaching for BISD at Van Raub Elementary. She is one of the Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) / Pre-Kindergarten (PK) / ECC (Staff child care) teachers at VRES and has 20 years in education, with over 13 years of experience teaching ECSE (formerly PPCD) in Texas. Mrs. Wilson is a graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos. She is married and has one daughter who will attend 7th grade in BISD this year. Her family moved back to the hill country three years ago after living in the Rio Grande Valley for four years. Mrs. Wilson is an avid reader and enjoys traveling. She loves playing games and is looking forward to continuing to sponsor the VRES Game Club for a second year! Mrs. Wilson is very excited to meet and connect with her new and returning students and their families!
Let's Talk! I can be reached by several methods:
SeeSaw (app) is the easiest method for communication and messages will be answered the same day whenever possible, but no later than 24 hours after being received.
Email is also an easy method, and emails will be answered the same day whenever possible, but no later than 24 hours after being received.
Phone conferences and in-person conferences can be requested via email, voicemail, or a note in your child's folder and will be scheduled during after school hours or during my conference time, as soon as possible.
Phonecalls received during instructional hours (7:15-3:15) will be sent to voicemail, but will be responded to on the same day or within 24 hours.
I am excited to get to know your child and your families this year!
