Literacy Coach

Hi everyone!

My name is Sara Whitener. I am currently a first year literacy coach with Hamilton County Schools. I am excited to be a part of the meaningful changes taking place at Woodmore this year! 

I started my career in Ohio as an intermediate science and writing teacher. I have lived in the Chattanooga area for 6 years, and have worked in 3 different settings within Hamilton County - CSAS, Ooltewah Elementary, and now Woodmore. I graduated from TTU with my M.A. in Curriculum & Instruction in 2014. At Bethel University, I am currently pursuing my Instructional Leadership endorsement. I love to learn, and will try my best to instill that love of learning with our students and teachers.

I am still trying to find the balance of work, school, wife, and mom. My daughter is 14-months old and is my greatest joy! I try and remember her each day as I am working with our students and teachers, reminding them that they are all valuable, intelligent, and important to our success as a school team. Every person at Woodmore has talents that should be supported and enriched!

I look forward to meeting you and working with your students this year!
