Ms. Jochems (Ms. Sara)
Mr. & Mrs. Happy

I have been a part of the Northrop family for five years. I began as a Minnesota Reading Corps literacy tutor, for three years, before being hired on as an Associate Educator.  I instantly fell in love with the students, their families and staff. 

The young gentleman to the right is my husband of three years, Kevin. Believe it or not, we met on an airplane, on the way to Germany, back in May of 2007. Lucky for us, we still speak German, and have toured London, Dublin and Paris (I'll stop bragging). 

When I grow up, I want to be an elementary educator. I just submitted my paperwork and anytime now, I will be a licensed K-6 teacher! I cannot wait to have my own classroom. Until then, I will continue to be an advocate for our Northrop kiddos and keep strong relationships with parents and staff :)
