Sarah Robertson, Kindergarten & Music
Sarah spent most of her growing up years in Wisconsin. Her dad is the pastor of a small church, and early on she learned the importance of music. Her parents invested in music lessons for her, and she took nine years of piano lessons and several years of voice lessons. She continued to take music lessons throughout her college years. She has also taught piano lessons in the past. God continues to give her opportunities to learn and stretches her in ways that cause her to grow in her walk with the Lord.
Music holds a special place in her heart as she enjoys it so much. Her desire is to teach the students the value of Godly music, different composers in history, and making a joyful noise unto the Lord.
“I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.” (Psalm 104:33)

Mrs. Heanssler earned her Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, FL. She has taught at every level from K-8 as well as freshman science.
