Hi! My name is Sara O’Mara! I moved from Chicago to Las Vegas to start my teaching career in 2007.  This year I am one of two ELA teachers for 5th grade. This will be my 13th 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 2006, I graduated from UIC for the second time with a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
