Hi! My name is Sarah Vinklarek. Although this will be my first year to serve as the school counselor, I have worked on the elementary campus for the last five years as a third grade teacher. I am a graduate of Smithville High School and Southwest Texas State University, where I graduated with a B.A. in Political Science. I am currently a graduate student at Lamar University. I have been married for six years to my husband, Matthew, and we have two children, Sophie and Samuel. Our family also includes our spirited yellow lab, Charles. I am so excited about the upcoming school year and can’t wait to see all of the new and returning smiling faces on our campus!
