Mrs. Sarah Cichorzewski grew up in Kitchener after moving to the region from Ireland at the age of 6. Mrs. Cichorzewski completed teacher’s college and began at SJK at supply teacher and became a full-time faculty member in 2009. She believes in the importance of getting to know each one of her students and feels that creating a classroom community that is inclusive and safe spurs students to think critically and take risks. Mrs. Cichorzewski follows the education philosophy that when natural curiosity drives instruction, the student outcomes are much more impressive.
Her students are the main source of her inspiration, citing her students' natural curiosity and eagerness to drive her instruction and is amazed by how much she learns along the way. Mrs. Cichorzewski is also inspired by her SJK colleagues; whether it’s through their own passions or their different approaches to teaching, she feels SJK is an environment in which she is constantly learning from her fellow faculty and staff members. In her downtime, Mrs. Cichorzewski enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and two sons.
