About the Teacher

Welcome to Mrs. Saar's class webpage! I am so pleased to have Mrs. Patricia Horton as our class aide! 

It am beyond excited to be teaching Pre K 2's again this year! I am a graduate of James Madison University with a Bachelor of Science in Communications. Early in my career I was a Vice President in the Equities Communications Dept. for two major Investment Banking firms. My husband Ed and I are blessed to have raised three beautiful daughters all who attended Academy of Our Lady, and I too am a proud alumni of AoOL (then called St. Catherine School). In 2007, I joined the AoOL staff to teach both the two and three year old programs, where I taught with Allene Kiess until 2012. We also founded Happy Days Summer camp in 2007, which continues to grow today. In 2013, my family and I moved for my husband's career. Over the last few years I have taught Kindergarten Art classes and Preschool three's in Virginia.  In the summer of 2017 we had an opportunity to move home and we are currently living in Midland Park. I am excited to be back teaching at the school I love and a program I believe I can make a difference. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
