Mrs. Sara Carroll - Fourth Grade Teacher
I was born and raised in Arizona and graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education. My family and I relocated to North Carolina in January of 2015. This is my fourth year at St. James, and I am excited to be a part of this amazing community. Outside of the classroom, I have also been a supervisor for the City of Peoria and City of Surprise, AZ Parks and Recreation programs.
A fun fact about me is from 1996-1999 I worked for the Phoenix Mercury for an At-Risk Youth Basketball Program as a coach, referee, and mentor for young girls. Later on, from 2003-2006 I worked in the City of Surprise, AZ assisting with sponsorship partners for the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers during Spring Training.
My husband Tim and I have two children. Our son, Griffin, is 14 and our daughter, McKenna, is 12. My daughter plays softball, so we are usually on the softball field on the weekends for tournaments. She is in seventh grade at East Lincoln Middle. My son is a freshman at East Lincoln, and starting his third year on the East Lincoln High School Marching Band as a percussionist (he marched as a seven and eighth grader). He auditioned and accomplished 1st Chair Snare Drum for the NC Middle School Bands.
When I am not in the classroom I enjoy reading, hiking, and spending time with my family.
