Mrs. Sarah Coulson

I am so excited to be back and be apart of the 2017-2018 school year at Tippit Middle School! I am looking forward to a great year teaching 6th grade Language Arts. Professionally, I am starting my 14th year as a professional educator, both in middle school and elementary. I was a Para-Professional for 11 years too. I have a Bachelors of History from Tarleton State University and a Masters in Education from Abilene Christian University. I am highly qualified with a Generalists Certification of EC-6th grade. I too, have certifications in 4-8th Social Studies, ESL Supplementary and EC-12 Principal. Personally, my husband, Coach Coulson, and I have four children. Jackson and Jacie attend school here at Georgetown, 10th and 12th grade. Our eldest daughter Jena is a missionary and has worked for UK-USA Ministeries and she will return to the US this August. Our eldest son Jacob is a teacher and coach and he works at East View High and is married to Justeen who has her own select volleyball club, TEAM 6 and works at West Lake Middle School. Trystan and Teagan are our grand babies. I am very blessed.
Regards,
Sarah Coulson
