Ms. Sara Dotson
Hi! My name is Sara Dotson. I am so excited to be your child's 5th grade teacher!!
I graduated from Judson High School (Go Rockets!) and completed my Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Texas at San Antonio.
The 2018-2019 school year will be my seventh full year at Royal Ridge. I started at Royal Ridge in 2011 as the Computer Lab teacher and was moved to third grade the following school year. I've spent one year in 5th grade and six years in 3rd grade. I was a little nervous about moving grade levels, but I am excited to teach some of my previous third graders. I have benefited from these experiences because I developed a deep understanding of the importance of a solid 3rd grade foundation. My goal is to provide your child with a fun and memorable year, creating memories and developing a deep love of learning.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family, friends, and three fur-babies, Rowdy, Sammy, and Bishop. I love to read and go hiking. I am very passionate about teaching and I love being in the classroom.
We are going to have a fun, challenging, and exciting school year!! Please do not hesitate to contact me. Together, we will make your child's 5th grade year successful!
