Sarah Boswell, Director and PreK Teacher

Sarah grew up in Oklahoma where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She was as a 3rd grade teacher for several years before her children were born. Sarah and her husband Jimmy have 3 kids, 2 boys and 1 girl. They lived a few years overseas in Ireland before moving to Oregon in 2015. This is her 5th year at KOK. One thing Sarah loves when working with kids is seeing the excitement on their faces when they make connections and when they discover they CAN do something on their own! When Sarah isn’t at KOK, she spends her time at her kids’ ballgames and activities, traveling, and enjoys cooking.
