Pre-K Coordinator & Instructional Leader 
 
 
I taught Pre-K from 2000-2018 (in Coffeen since 2002).  I LOVE  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 4 year old daughter, a 10 year old son, and a 17 year old step-daughter.  My greatest joy in life is spending time with my family.  I also enjoy running, reading, baking, and camping.  Coffee and ice cream are two of my  "love languages". :p
 
Please feel free to contact me any time if you have questions about our program.  Be sure to check out the rest of our website to learn more about our Pre-K & First Steps!
