My name is Sarah Pruitt and this is my 2nd year working in FBISD. I am excited to be a leaping leopard at Malala Elementary. Last year, I was a special education paraprofessional at Anne Sullivan Elementary in Sugar Land. My job was to give support to students in the general education classroom who qualified for special education services. That position confirmed my desire to teach in my own classroom and help all students reach their highest potential. I chose to teach because I truly care about children, enjoy instilling them with knowledge, and motivating them. My academic background is in psychology and I always try to be aware of student's emotional well-being alongside their academic needs. I am very grateful for the opportunity to help children learn, grow, and achieve new goals. I believe a structured, safe, and encouraging atmosphere provides the best learning environment in a classroom.
