Grade 1 - Sarah Tonn
MRS. SARAH TONN - Grade 1 Teacher (mornings)

Background
I was born and raised in Milwaukee. I attended Garden Homes Lutheran School and continued at Wisconsin Lutheran for High school. After high school, I attended Waukesha County Technical College and then Lakeland. I completed the teacher education program up to student teaching at Lakeland University. I went back to school and I completed my degree at Alverno College in May.

Experience
I was the 4K teacher at Lamb of God Lutheran school for a year before accepting a call to start the 3K program at Garden Homes Lutheran. I taught there for three years. I resigned from my call to take care of our child who needed extra attention but continued to work as a substitute teacher here at St. Paul’s and other local WELS schools. I am very familiar with our school as I have served as our Kindergarten teacher’s aide for three years and 4th grade teacher’s aide for one year. This past school year, I was called to serve as the 3K teacher at St. John's Lutheran School on 68th and Forest Home.

Family
I met my husband, Brian, at Wisconsin Lutheran High school. We have four children: Melissa, who graduated from St. Paul’s and is now a Sophomore at Wisconsin Lutheran High School, Melanie (grade 8), Mylie (grade 4), and Kiefer (grade 1), all whom attend St. Paul’s.

Interests
Our family loves spending time outdoors hiking, swimming and playing softball/baseball. The rest of our free time is spent going to sporting events, whether it is to watch our own kids, or professional and college games.
