About Me:

My name is Sarah Wakefield. I am excited to be a part of the Travis Heights Pre-Kindergarten team. I am originally from Iowa, but have called myself a Texan since 2001. I am a graduate of the University of Texas and I have taught Pre-K and Kindergarten from 2006 in a private school setting. In my spare time I love spending time with my family and friends, enjoying outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, canoeing, cooking and visiting the National Parks across our country.
