    Hello, and WELCOME to Miss Saffold's teacher page. I am excited to be celebrating my 30th year of teaching in SUSD!  

    I have many wonderful lessons planned for this year which integrate all four core curricular subjects and will ensure a well-rounded educational experience.  

    Our classroom, Room 30, has adopted Howard University in Washington, DC.  We are looking forward to learning about the college experience from one of our nation's oldest and most revered institutions of higher learning.

    My goal is to make sure every student is ready to attend high school with an excellent foundation rooted in collaboration and critical thinking.  By employing a variety of strategies which promote each student taking personal responsibility for his/her learning and ability to make connections, all students will leave August School prepared to successfully complete high school both college AND career ready.
