Mrs. Sara Chisum

Kindergarten Teacher

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in early childhood education from Arkansas Tech University (Russellville, Arkansas) and am certified to teach grades K-6.  This is my 23rd year teaching kindergarten at Coats Elementary.  I was chosen as the Coats Elementary Teacher of the Year for the 2011-2012 school year. 

Mr. Chisum and I live in Fuquay-Varina and we love to go to the beach!  We have two sons, Matthew and Luke.  Matthew is a freshman at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.  He is a student and a pitcher on the baseball team.  Luke is a senior at Fuquay-Varina High School.  He is very artistic.  He draws and designs shoes, plays guitar and keyboard and sings in praise group at our church. We have a fat, black cat named Colbi and 5 rabbits!  Their names are Pumpkin, Scribbles, Piglet, Marcie and Peppermint Patty.   I am very excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher!
