Small Class, Big Hearts

Welcome to first grade!

Hello families! Welcome to first grade! My name is Sarah Kirby. Some returning MVE families may be thinking, "Hey isn't that Ms. Small?" Yes! On June 13, I got married to my very favorite person and am still getting used to this new name thing. Mike and I didn't let COVID get us down. We had a beautiful, perfect 10-person wedding in Allenspark, Colorado.

This will be my fifth year teaching first grade at Mountain View. First grade has my whole heart, and I cannot wait to meet my new little friends.

I grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago and lived in my hometown of Elmhurst, Illinois until 2016 when I decided to have an adventure and moved to Colorado.

When I'm not teaching, I love to be active. I am a registered yoga instructor, and I enjoy distance running and hiking in beautiful Colorado. I also love reading, cooking, and knitting. In addition to getting married, this summer, I completed my master's degree and visited family in Chicago.

I am so excited for a wonderful year!

Mrs. Kirby's favorites:

  • Sports team: Chicago Cubs
  • Color: Blue
  • Snack: Pretzels and popcorn
  • Book: Harry Potter
