Ms. Sarah Gooding

Hello! My name is Sarah Gooding. I teach the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade Unique Pathways 1 class. I grew up in Clover and graduated from Clover High School in 2010. I graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, NC in May 2014 with a degree in psychology. I later attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia where I received my Masters in Teaching Special Education. This will be my fourth year teaching and second year at York Road! 
When I am not at school, I love spending time at the lake or pool, playing with my pitbull Greta, going to football games, or traveling the world. I went to Hawaii this summer but my favorite place to visit is Thailand!  
My favorite thing about teaching is helping students learn and grow. Learning can be fun and seeing my students succeed and gain confidence makes me so proud! I teach because it is the most rewarding job in the world! I also love the bonds I am able to make with students and their families throughout the year!
