Ms. Sarah Kempf
Hi! My name is Ms. Kempf and I am one of St. Paul Online Elementary School Visual Arts teachers and I am so excited to be working with the wonderfully talented and creative students here at SPOE! This is my first year as a teacher in the St. Paul Public Schools district. Before coming back to St. Paul Public Schools as a Visual Arts teacher, I taught at a charter school for 8 years. I taught kindergarten for 6 years and 2nd grade for 2 years. Previous to that, I worked for St. Paul Public Schools as a TA and EA for 7 years. I also did my student teaching in St. Paul Public Schools.
I received a BA in Geography from the University of St. Thomas and my MA in Elementary Education from the University of St. Thomas.
When I am not teaching I can be found running, Olympic weightlifting, drawing and painting, cooking, playing violin and guitar, and fostering animals from the Animal Humane Society. My favorite artists include: Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, Tyree Gutyon, Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Henri Matisse, and Yayoi Kusma.
