Welcome to 5th Grade! I My name is Sara Fisher, and I have been teaching in Des Moines since 2018. I am so excited to be joining the students and staff at Wright Elementary. I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Education from the University of Northern Iowa in 2015 with a minor in literacy. I am from a small town in Northern Iowa and am very excited to explore the beautiful city of Des Moines! My favorite role next to teaching is being an aunt to my two beautiful neices, Ella & Brooklyn. I love spending time with family and friends, playing golf and sand volleyball, and relaxing on the lake. I am looking forward to having an amazing year at Wright Elementary!
