Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to Ecoff Elementary's 2017-2018
Teacher of the Year!

Sarah Takacs

Now in her 16th year of teaching, Mrs. Takacs received the Teacher of the Year honor after her 6th year at Ecoff Elementary. She received a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Virginia Tech in 2002 and later received a master’s degree from Longwood in Library Media in 2012.   After teaching in the classroom for 10 years, Mrs. Takacs is now the librarian at Ecoff.   In her free time, Mrs. Takacs enjoys reading, camping/hiking, watching Virginia Tech football, and spending time with her husband and two young boys.

Why does she love teaching in the library? “I love getting to know all of the children in the school on a personal level.  As a librarian, I get the special privilege of watching them grow and develop as readers over their 6 years in elementary school.  I especially love to make reading fun, and sometimes silly, too.  I want to inspire students to find creative ways and places to make reading an everyday part of their lives.”
