Mrs. Sara Horchem

My name is Sara Horchem, and I teach Spanish as a second language to students at the brand new Montessori for Peace Academy. I was born and raised in Lincoln, Illinois and I still live in that small community.  I am married and have 3 boys- Josh, Justin, and Jason. I began teaching in DPS at Garfield Montessori Magnet School in 2010 where I also taught Spanish. I am excited to have made the move to the Montessori Academy for Peace and look forward to introducing students to Spanish language and culture.
