Sara Westerhaus

6th-8th Grade Social Studies Teacher

My name is Sara Westerhaus. This will be my sixteenth year of teaching and eleventh year with LVS.  Before coming to LVS, I taught 5th grade and coached middle school track.  While at LVS, I have been a part of the 6-8 team, teaching both math and social studies.

My undergraduate degree is in Elementary and Middle School Education with minors in Social Studies and Mathematics.  My Master’s degree is in Curriculum and Instruction, in addition to Educational Technology & Library Media.  I am excited to be a part of the LVS team and to help support families on their education journey!

About 3 years ago, my family (my husband, ten-year-old son, eight-year-old son and six-year-old son)  moved from Lawrence to Andale, a small town west of Wichita.  While we may be outside of Jayhawk territory now, we are still huge KU fans and love to cheer on the Jayhawks!
