Hello! My name is Sarah McBride and this is my 13th year at Bay Meadows on the 2nd grade team. I graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and then stayed on to complete my Master of Education degree, specializing in teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). GOGATORS! I have also completed my Reading Endorsement for grades K-12, and I am currently working towards my Gifted Endorsement. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher, and 2nd grade has always been my favorite grade. There is something magical that happens at this age and I love being a part of that magic. As someone who grew-up in southwest Orlando and in Orange County Public Schools, I enjoy being able to give back to my community. Working at Bay Meadows with such wonderful students, parents and co-workers has taught me so much. I look forward to growing and learning even more this year! I am proud to be a Bay Meadows Koala!

Teaching Philosophy:I feel extremely privileged to be a part of your child’s life this year! The idea of helping students find themselves through the joy of learning is something that I am truly passionate about. I translate this enthusiasm into creative lessons that are meaningful and engaging to my students. Each child brings something unique and special to the classroom, and I draw on these strengths in my teaching. I believe in student-centered teaching filled with cooperative learning and hands-on experiences. Building classroom community is extremely important to me and I hope that my students will become educational risk takers who support one another and genuinely enjoy learning. When students view learning as a life long adventure, there is no limit to what they can achieve! I also believe strongly in the home-school connection and the vital role parents (and families) play in learning.

This is me when I was in 2nd grade. I had the BEST 2nd grade teacher (Hi, Mrs. MacNeil!), and that’s when I knew that I wanted to be a 2nd grade teacher when I grew up. Now here I am fulfilling that dream!

This is Mr. McBride! I love this picture because it was taken in Santorini, Greece on the day we got engaged. He is a Gator, too! 🙂

This is our son, Finn! He is 2 1/2 and a ton of fun! I am sure you will hear lots of “Finny stories” throughout the year.

This is our fur baby, Holden! We adopted him right after we got married when he was only a little kitten.

This is my wonderful family. My parents live here in Orlando and my sister, Lindsay, lives in New York City. We are very close and love spending time together. The first picture was taken up in the mountains of Virginia where most of our extended-family lives. The second picture was taken on a trip to visit Lindsay and her husband in NYC. The third picture is all of us at one of our absolute favorite places: Sanibel Island!


Hobbies: reading, watching movies, creating things for our classroom (and finding cool learning tools on Amazon), being outside in the Florida sunshine, learning about different cultures, writing (I LOVE stationary and hand written notes!), Gator football and basketball, shopping (I’m a little obsessed with the Nordstrom Rack!), discovering new restaurants, and spending time with my family and friends

Foods: seafood, pizza, popcorn, donuts, cotton candy, cupcakes…I’m a snacker so I never turn down any snack foods or sweet treats! 🙂

Color: yellow

Children’s Books Authors: Eve Bunting, Mo Willems, Jon Scieszka, Margie Palatini, Tomie dePaola, Cynthia Rylant, Patricia Polacco, Maurice Sendak, Arnold Lobel, Roald Dahl, the list goes on and on…

I am a true Florida Gator! Both my undergraduate and graduate degrees are from the University of Florida, so you will probably notice a few gators hiding out in our classroom. I was lucky enough to be at UF when we won 3 back-to-back National Championships (Basketball, Football, Basketball). I definitely believe that it is “great to be a Florida Gator!”
