Mrs. Sarah Leeser
This is my fourth year working at Free State and I will be working with freshmen for the second year in a row! I love working with this grade and helping with the transition from middle school. I work directly with students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development.
Freshmen, please never hesitate to reach out to me if you need me! I want to get to know you all. While we are still working virtually, the best way to get a hold of me is via email- firstname.lastname@example.org.
A little bit about me, my husband, Kyle, and I moved to Lawrence with our furbaby, Molly, in April 2017 and I love being part of the Firebird Family! We have four wonderful nieces and newphews in Lawrence and are expecting our own baby boy in October 2020. I previously worked as a school counselor in Independence, MO. I received my undergrad degree from Benedictine- Go Ravens!
I serve as the AP Coordinator for FSHS.
I am available between 8AM-4PM Monday-Friday.
