I would like to send greetings to all of the Grant Wood Griffin families.  My name is Sara Carter and this will be my third year teaching first grade at Grant Wood Elementary School.  Before being a Griffin, I was a preschool teacher at Grant Early Childhood Center (also in Cedar Rapids) for eleven years.  I grew up in the small town of Durant, IA.  After graduating from high school in 1996, I went to Luther College in Decorah, IA.  I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in teaching in the spring of 2000.  After graduation I moved to Cedar Rapids and began my teaching career in the fall of 2000 in the STEP-UP preschool program.My husband Keith and I have a daughter Ava who turned one in July.  We enjoy spending time together as a family. In my spare time I enjoy baking, cooking, crafting and scrapbooking, and chasing after Ava. I am glad to be at Grant Wood and look forward to many more years being a Griffin.
