Mrs. Sarah Breen

Hello! My name is Sarah Breen and I am a Self-Contained Special Education Teacher at Pleviak. I have taught kindergarten in the district for eleven years. Currently, I have 9 wonderful students and one amazing assistant in my room. Our classroom is a 1:1 iPad class, each student has their own iPad that we use daily for literacy and math instruction. We love working on our iPads and creating activities that showcase all our hard work.

I attended Eastern Illinois University where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. I later went on to Olivet Nazarene University and received my Master’s Degree as a Reading Specialist. I have a passion for reading and writing and love showing my students how amazing books can be!

I live in Spring Grove with my wonderful husband, son, Landon, and mother. We enjoy spending time outside, hanging out with friends, and going to restaurants. If you have any questions or want to talk, please feel free to contact me here at school 847-270-9490 (ext. 6486) or by email at
