Sarah Puleo joined the SKDS staff in 2015 as our fifth grade teacher.
She attended Michigan State University where she obtained her Middle
Childhood-Early Adolescence teacher’s license. Prior to joining the SKDS
staff Mrs. Puleo substitute taught in many school districts across
Wisconsin for 3 years and was the Administrative Assistant in the Child
Care Center at the YMCA of Dodge County.
Mrs. Puleo is originally
from the northern part of Illinois, where she and her sister grew up and
attended the nearby Catholic school. She and her husband have lived in
several areas in Wisconsin. Her husband’s job brought them to the Beaver
Dam area in 2014.
Mrs. Puleo believes the
best parts of teaching are getting to know her students, observing
students develop new skills, and the joy on each students face when they
learn something new. Her favorite quote is “Education is the most
powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Outside of school, Mrs.
Puleo enjoys hiking, scrapbooking, spending time with her dog and
camping in our National parks.
