Miss Sarah Vander Wiele

Hello, Sharks!

My name is Sarah Vander Wiele. This will be my second year teaching and my first year teaching Biology at Shadow Creek. Last year, I taught middle school sciences for sixth and seventh grade. I am so excited to begin this journey with this school! I attended college at San Jacinto College for two years, and then transferred to The University of Texas MD Anderson School of Health Professions where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Histotechnology. While attending UTMDA, I interned at theHarris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.


When I am not in the classroom or lab, I enjoy playing games with my family and friends, playing intramural sports with the Houston Sports Club, making music and singing, and loving on my almost two-year-old puppy, Millie Jane. Along with obviously being a crazy science nerd, I am a huge Disney and Harry Potter nerd. Be warned, I might spit out some quotes here and there and try to use examples from Harry Potter or Disney!


Everyone is a little apprehensive about school this year, and that's okay! I will do my best to answer any questions and calm any nerves about this year. My school email is always available for all questions and concerns! Please do not hesitate to reach out.
