Spruce Mountain Primary School    

Sarah Hubbard was destined to be a teacher from an early age. After graduating from Mt. Blue High School in Farmington in 1997, she received her Bachelor’s in early childhood education from the University of Maine at Farmington in 2001. She took a position as an education technician at the Livermore Elementary School, which recently became the district’s primary school, and soon after was presented the opportunity to teach first grade there. She cherished the opportunity and began her quest within the district of molding the minds of the area’s youth. After many years teaching first grade, she transitioned to teaching Kindergarten. She has remained constant in her pursuit to educate, challenge, and guide the community’s children into the future. Her favorite part of teaching is hearing from past students on their accomplishments which inspires her new students. Her passion for teaching is fortified by a wealth of family and friends, which is extremely important to her. She resides in Livermore with her husband Jason, daughter Samantha, son Brett, and two rescue dogs Reba and Melody. She enjoys reading, camping, kayaking, ATV rides, card making, and archery.
