Lakeside Elementary School

 Ms. Walters, Cece and Quinn Welcome to 4th grade!
My name is Sara Walters and this is my 12th year of teaching.  I live in Ferndale with my daughter Cecelia, who is a first grader at Lakeside, son Quinn, dog Milton and cat Eileen. 
I started teaching when I was 14, teaching swimming.  It's pretty safe to say that I'd wanted to be a teacher since 6th grade.  I officially began my teaching career in Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer where I conducted in-service teacher training for teachers in the southern country of Namibia.  From there, I taught 4th grade for 3 years in Anchorage and finally moved back to our home of Montana where we have lived ever since.  Before teaching 4th grade at Lakeside, I taught 7th grade language arts for 9 years at Somers Middle School.  I'm lucky to have taught the 7th grade siblings of almost half my class this year!
Please call (844-2208) or email ( if you have any questions or concerns.

I appreciate every day I spend with your students as they grow and become independent thinkers and problem solvers. 
Let's grow together this year!
