Hello, my name is Mrs. Sayre. I have four beautiful children, Miranda, Kayla, Alden and Savanna. I love spending time with them. We like to go to the pool and Dorney Park in the summer. I received my Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian in 2005. I am going back to school for my teaching certificate for English secondary education and ESL. I decided I wanted to teach ESL beacause my five-year-old daughter has a boy in her preschool class who is Chinese and speaks little to no English, and I see the challenges her teacher faces in trying to teach him. He often speaks to her in Chinese and she has no idea what he is saying. I would like to bridge that gap, so all students have a chance to learn.

        I have not done any field experience work yet because I just started back in the program, but I have helped out in many of my children's classrooms and within our district, and chaperoned many field trips. Looking forward to chaperoning the New York trip in May!

        Before that, I worked as associate editor for The Catasauqua Press, Whitehall-Coplay Press, and Northampton Press. I also did lots of reporting and photography, which took me into the area schools, so I got to spend a lot of time with children.

        I also like helping my friend Kelly raise money for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley. Kelly had a little boy who passed away from cancer. I have been helping her raise money. I organized a bingo for the cause, and participated in the walk every March.
