Pre-K Coordinator & Instructional Leader 
 
 
I taught Pre-K from 2000-2018 (in Coffeen since 2002).  I LOVE teaching Pre-K!! It is a passion of mine and I truly enjoy teaching and watching these young children grow!  I moved into the role of Pre-K Coordinator and Instructional Leader for our program in 2018, and am excited to continue working with our littlest students and their families, as well as to be a support to the amazing teachers of this program.
 
Students call me "Miss Sarah" since my last name is a little tricky.  (Yes, that's really a "P" at the end!!)  
 
I completed my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education in 2000 at Greenville College, and received a Master's in Special Education with an emphasis in early childhood at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville in 2006. 
 
I am married to Hillsboro High School grad, Kevin VanMiddendorp (Class of '00).  I have a 3 year old daughter, a 9 year old son, and a 16 year old step-daughter.  My greatest joy in life is spending time with my family.  I also enjoy running, reading, and camping.  Coffee and ice cream are two of my  "love languages".  I also enjoy chocolate & Key Lime LaCroix ;)
