SarahSarah Hoppe, M.A., LSLS Cert. AVEd

As a Primary II (ages 5-8) Teacher, Sarah’s role involves getting students ready for Kindergarten and first grade. Some of the things that the children learn in her classroom are speech, audition, vocabulary, math, reading, and syntax. She also works with the kids on their self-advocacy skills.

Sarah joined the Child’s Voice family in June 2005. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education from St. Louis University and a Master’s in Early Intervention in Deaf Education from Fontbonne University.  She learned about Child’s Voice as a graduate student at Fontbonne University where she worked closely with the Moog Center, the Central Institute for the Deaf, and St. Joe’s Institute.

After 10 years of teaching at Childs Voice, Sarah decided to work part-time and team-teach with Olivia Wealton. Sarah now works in the classroom 2 to 3 days a week.  Team-teaching has been a wonderful experience and perfect way to collaborate ideas and teaching strategies with Olivia.  Sarah is also a member of the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (AG Bell).

She and her husband David currently live in Warrenville with their daughters Ellison and Ryleigh. In her spare time, Sarah prefers to be at home with David and the girls, going for a run when the weather is nice, watching movies, and spending time with her parents and her two brothers.
