Mrs. Sara LaTorre » Welcome


Welcome to Room 15!


Hello families of Room 15,


My name is Sara LaTorre. I am thrilled to have your child in my fifth grade class this year! I am originally from Phoenix, AZ and I received my Bachelors Degree from Arizona State University (Go Sun Devils!). I went on to obtain my Masters in Teaching from Pepperdine University and I am excited to be teaching 5th grade for the third year at Jefferson! I live in Redondo Beach with my husband, Brian, and our chihuahua mix, Zoe. 


I believe the classroom should be an encouraging, organized, and collaborative learning environment to allow for creativity and a safe haven for learning and growing. I follow the Responsive Classroom approach to my teaching.  This approach emphasizes that an inclusive community and social-emotional learning is equally as important as engaging academics. 


I look forward to another wonderful year!
