This week, West Elementary School named Mrs. Sarah Edmonson as Teacher of the Year for 2023-24. We are so proud to have her represent us. Here's a little more about her.

My name is Sarah Edmonson, and I am honored to have been chosen as Teacher of the Year by my colleagues. I hold a bachelor's degree in Recreation Therapy from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and I began my career at the Oaks Psychiatric Hospital in Wilmington, NC, and the Cleveland/Gaston County Mental Health Departments.

In 2002, I joined the team at West Elementary and pursued graduate coursework at UNCC to obtain my teaching licenses in Cross Categorical (K-12) and General Curriculum. As an educator in the Exceptional Children's Program for two decades, I have had the privilege of witnessing the growth and progress of countless students.

Outside of my professional life, I am a proud wife to my husband, Brian, and a mother to two wonderful children. My son, Silas, is currently attending UNC-Chapel Hill, while my daughter, Bela, is a junior at Kings Mountain High School. In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my loved ones and exploring my passion for crocheting, sewing, and creating jewelry.
