My name is Sara Finkler and this is my fifth year teaching at Vines. I teach Algbera 1, Honors Algebra 1, and I am the Vines Cheer Coach. 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, traveling, watching sports, working out, relaxing at the pool, and playing golf.
"Teaching is a work of HEART".
