Mrs. Sarah Lynn Camper

Fifth Grade

My name is Sarah Lynn Camper and I am so excited for another amazing year at Excelsior Academy in 5th grade. Learning is my favorite hobby! I love the feeling of my brain being stretched and expanded. I feel lucky to be born in an age where knowledge is only limited by our determination and the need for sleep.

I grew up in a small town in South Central Idaho, where I had room to explore and dream. I received my Bachelors in Political Science with a Minor in Public Relations from Brigham Young University-Idaho.  After graduation, I received a hands-on education in classroom management from my 3 children, as I worked in the role of stay at home parent.

Our family was bewitched with the Tooele Valley when we came out here for a hike up Settlement Canyon and have every intention of making this valley our forever home. Shortly after moving here my oldest child started Kindergarten at Excelsior Academy. I instantly fell in love with the “Leaders and Learners for Life” environment. I quickly realized how much I missed academia and began to do the legwork to become a certified teacher under the Utah APT Licensure. I was mentored and guided by the master teachers here at Excelsior as a teacher intern and continue as work 5th-grade homeroom teacher. 

I am constantly impressed by the grit and determination demonstrated daily by our students. I look forward to assisting your students to develop a lifetime passion for learning and help them grow in their leadership.
