English Learner Program
Safety Patrol Program
My name is Sara Nash, and I have been teaching English Learners in the Anoka Hennepin School District since 2006. This is my fourth year teaching ELs and running the Safety Patrol Program at Hoover Elementary. I grew up and went to school in ISD#11, graduating from Anoka High School in 1995. I received both my bachelors and masters degrees from Hamline University in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Upon graduation, I lived in Taipei, Taiwan where I began my career teaching English Learners. Since then, I have had the pleasure of teaching students at every level and age, from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. This has given me a wide breadth of experience and knowledge working with English Learners from around the world, including those born right here in Minnesota. I am truly blessed to have such a rewarding job in education, working with students with diverse languages, backgrounds and cultures.
