 I am Sarah Bawden, and I am celebrating being an educator for over three decades!  I am passionate to continue carrying on the proud profession of being a teacher in my family just like my grandmother had done starting in a one-room schoolhouse and my aunt has done for many years!  I was born in Iowa and grew up in Omaha, Nebraska in a big, loving family! Without a doubt, I am a Husker football fan!!  I graduated from UNC in Greeley and have a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  I have continued to value finding opportunities to learn and grow each year.  My first year of teaching was in California in a third grade classroom.  Upon returning to Colorado, I have taught mostly in the intermediate grades in a 3rd and/or 4th grade classroom in Jeffco Public Schools.  When I began teaching at Columbine Hills Elementary, I devoted 10 years in a second grade classroom and enjoyed the opportunity to build upon my teaching skills.  Now I have come full circle by being back in a 3rd grade classroom!  Outside of the classroom, I love spending time with my husband and three children.  Being active outdoors, going for walks, gardening, watching movies, cheering on teams in various sports, dabbling in some painting and other crafts, and even spending time with my camera and exploring photography are some of my hobbies.  As I begin another school year, I am truly looking forward to teaming with my CHE families to achieve a common goal of promoting and supporting growth in all of my students in many wonderful ways as we nurture a beautiful third grade garden!

Vickie Sarcletti

My name is Vickie Sarcletti. I have been fortunate to make Columbine Hills my home for most of my career in education.  I have held many roles here and currently I am teaching in third grade.  I grew up in South Dakota where I received my teaching degree in my home town of Madison.  I received my master’s degree from the University of Phoenix in Administration and Supervision. I love learning!  I am truly happy when I am learning something new that challenges my way of thinking.
I have a passion for helping each student reach their true potential as a third grader. I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures growth in a positive, fun environment.  My goal is to create learners that are self-directed, goal oriented, and take pride in their accomplishments.  I constantly make connections from our third-grade learning to how it will be used in future schooling and in life. 
I am married with one son who attended Columbine Hills as a child.  My husband and I enjoy taking our two huskies, Zeus and Chloe, to the Chatfield dog park each weekend, and enjoy motorcycling through Deer Creek Canyon.  We also love spending time on the beautiful Flaming Gorge in Wyoming/Utah hiking and boating with friends in the summer.
I look forward to working together with you as partners in your child’s growth and development in becoming an awesome human being!
