Pre K Staff
Ms. Sara Joosten
Hi! My name is Ms. Sara, and I am so excited to be teaching Pre-K at Nottingham Elementary again this year! I was born and raised in Washington, D.C. and just moved into Arlington this summer. I started teaching at Nottingham in 2019 after I graduated from James Madison University with my Master’s degree in early childhood and special education. When we aren’t playing, laughing, and learning in the classroom, you can find me rooting for the Washington Nationals, reading, and spending time with my friends and family. I can’t wait for a great school year!
Ms. Julia Petro
I have been teaching since 2015 and joined the Nottingham community in 2019. Pre-K is my passion, and in our class, you will often find us learning through play, laughing, solving problems together, and occasionally sleeping (rest time). I love traveling, rock climbing, cooking, and playing ultimate frisbee!
