Mrs. Sarah Pritts

I am a lifelong resident of Decatur. I graduated from Decatur Public Schools in 1998 and spent my first two years of college attending Richland community college. I graduated from Millikin University in 2002 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. In 2007 I received my Master’s Degree from the University of Illinois at Springfield in Teacher Leadership. After finishing my Master’s Degree I completed 32 additional credit hours through Augustana College in a variety of courses that have helped me to meet the needs of my students. In 2016 I began my journey to become a Montessori guide, and in 2019 I completed my Montessori certification through MMTTC. I am currently a candidate for National Board Certification which I plan to complete in 2023.

My husband Ryan works for the City of Decatur as a lieutenant for the fire department. We have two daughters, Marissa (11) and Cassidy (7) who both attend the Montessori Academy for Peace. In our free time we love to be out in nature, especially out on Lake Decatur. We also love to volunteer our time helping different community organizations.
