Mrs. Chapman


 Sarah Chapman
Nationally Board Certified Teacher

Welcome to My Exceptional Classroom

My name is Sarah Chapman and I am in my 10th year as the Autism Teacher at Shady Brook Elementary. I work with 3rd-5th grade students with Autism for Kannapolis City Schools. I was Shady Brook Elementary School's 2012-2013 Teacher of the Year and Kannapolis City Schools Co-Runner-Up for Teacher of the Year. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.                 
College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I have a bachelors of arts in Special Education K-12 and Elementary Education K-6 from Marshall University in Huntington, WV. I am currently pursuing a masters degree from UNCC.

Educational Philosophy/Vision:
My belief as an educator is that all students can and do learn at different rates and levels. "Once you've met one child with autism, then you have met one child with autism!" I am a firm believer in differentiated instruction to meet each child's academic potential. I want my students to experience all aspects of education by having fun and being active participants in their learning. My dream is that education is not just excellence for a few, but that every opportunity is accessible to all learners.
