Mrs. Hope Sawyer
Hi! My name is Hope Sawyer. I grew up in Greenwood, MS, a small community in the delta. I received my teaching degree from Delta State University in Cleveland, MS. I have been teaching for 23 years. I taught 4th/5th grades, 3rd grade and 1st grade, respectively. I am starting my second year in 2nd grade this fall and I am so excited.
I completed my National Board Certification in 2003 and in 2007 received the Presidential of Excellence Award for Mathematics in Alabama. Then in 2008 I completed my Master's degree with a speciality in reading. In 2011, I received the Cliff Spanier Teacher of the Year award at Fairhope Elementary School.
My husband, Craig and I have a blended family of five children and three wonderful grandchildren - Brayden(11) Eli (7) and Adalynne(5)~ along with 2 dogs- Annie and Taji. Craig is a Sergeant with the Fairhope Police Deptartment and the SRO at J. Larry Newton School.
