Hi! My name is Sara O’Mara! I moved from Chicago to Las Vegas to start my teaching career in 2007. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, traveling & hanging out with my new puppy. I will be your child’s 1st grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year! This will be my 11th year teaching at Helen Herr Elementary. I am excited to make this my best year yet!
I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, IL where I attended St. Cletus Catholic School for Kindergarten through 8th grade. I then attended Hinsdale Central High School.
In May of 2005, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago. In December 2016, I graduated from UIC for the 2nd time with a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
