 My name is Sarah Leach and I am proud to be a member of the McGraw Central School District! I grew up in McGaw, graduating in 2007. I truly enjoyed my experiences here as a child, and I believe this is a wonderful community for students to grow and learn! I started my career in education here as a Teaching Assistant before spending two years working as an Itinerant Speech Language Therapist. I am now in my 7th year as a Special Education Teacher in McGraw. This year, I am working in both 4th and 1st grade. I am a Safety Patrol co-advisor and have run the Kindess Club as part of our afterschool enrichment program! I am a member of the Character Education Committee for our school. I believe in the importance of being part of a community, both in and out of school. I am happy to be working and raising my family in this great community, and I hope to help our students have a great experience here as well!
