Sara Cimmers

Special Education Director

My name is Sara Cimmers, or "Teacher Sara". I accidentally started teaching special education in 2007 and have been passionate about my job and the kids that I work with ever since. I have a Bachelor's degree in Business Management and a Master's degree in Special Education. I am constantly taking classes to further my own learning.

At home, I live with John and together we have sic kids. We also have a fish, a hedgehog, three cats, and a dog. For fun, I like to try new restaurants, work on home improvement projects, and craft.

My job at Hawthorn Academy is to make sure that every student has the tools and support that he or she needs to be successful at school. It is a commitment that I take very seriously. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help your student!
