My Name is Sarah Milosh. I currently teach Dyslexia Reading, Junior English, AVID III & Senior AP Literature. I live in Azle, Texas with my family. I am originally from Illinois and moved to Texas in 2003. Prior to teaching, I worked in the Information Technology field. Though I enjoyed my work, I always wanted to teach. In 2002, I returned to school and completed my Bachelor's Degree in English Education at the University of Texas in Arlington. In 2013, I joined the Azle High School faculty and have thoroughly enjoyed my time here.
In addition to teaching, I am the AVID Campus Coordinator and the UIL Ready Writing Coach.
I truly believe that English provides the core skills necessary to be successful in the future. If a student can read, write, and speak well, these skills will take them anywhere they want to go!
Being a teacher is a privilege that comes with great responsibility. I believe that ALL children can learn. The goal of any teacher is to find out how to best teach each student. As a mother of a Dyslexic child, I try to always meet my students where they are and hopefully bring them forward to a place where they can master the required concepts. Not all students learn the same and as the teacher, I try to incorporate several different learning styles into my lessons. My goal this year and every year is to teach every student who is willing to learn.
My classroom management is based on mutual respect between teacher and student. I feel that respect is something everyone deserves and I try to always consider the feelings and motivations of all my students. That being said, I have two points that I refuse to comprise on in my classroom environment. The first is disrupting the learning environment. I have an obligation to teach all students and if a student chooses to disrupt the learning that needs to take place, I will remove the distraction and make no exceptions. Each day is important in our journey to learn and master critical concepts. The second point that I will not yield on is safety. I am not merely referring to physical safety but to mental welfare as well. I do not allow any bullying, physical intimidation, hatred, or hostility. I must provide a safe and healthy environment for ALL students.
I hope this section gives you some insight into my teaching methodology. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Looking forward to a great year!!
