My name is Sara Finkler and this is my seventh year teaching at Vines. I teach Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. I love teaching and helping students learn critical thinking skills. Teaching makes my heart whole and it is so fun to see the student's growth throughout the year. My goal is to help your students learn critical thinking skills from Algebra and become lifelong learners.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family and friends, watching sports, working out, and playing golf.
