Sarah Blackwell

Hello! My name is Sarah Gooding. My hometown is Clover, SC. This will be my 6th year teaching, 4th year at York Road. I have taught all in 3-8 grade special education. I completed my bachelor of arts in psychology at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, NC and my master of arts in teaching special education at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.

My favorite hobby is hanging out with my 1 year old daughter, Georgia and husband, Chris. I have three dogs, Greta, Gauge, and Champ. I also have a turtle named Sanford and a python named Ringo. An interesting fact about me is that I love to travel. My favorite trips I've taken include visits to: Thailand, Taiwan, Australia, Jamaica, Hawaii, and Los Angeles.

I am looking forward to getting to know my new students and seeing my returning students! I can't wait for a great year and to have fun learning!
