Mrs. Sarah Dean

Hello Wildcat Family,
I’m one of Dubose’s newest math teachers in Grade 8. It is my responsibility
to ensure that each young person who leaves my classroom is “Algebra ready” for High School.
I am originally from Texas and came to the Carolinas for college. I earned
my Bachelor’s Degree from Clemson University in Elementary Education
and later earned a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Coastal Carolina
University. In the future, I hope to pursue a doctoral degree in Curriculum and
Instruction. I began my teaching career in Charlotte, NC where I taught 8th-grade math,
including Algebra and Geometry, at a parochial school for seven years. I then
moved to Myrtle Beach, SC and worked at Myrtle Beach Middle School for seven
years. In my time at MBM, I served as an 8th-grade Algebra and Geometry teacher
for two years, an Instructional Coach for four years, and my last year I served as
the 6th-grade Assistant Principal. My husband and I moved to the Summerville area in
June of 2018 and for the past year, I have been blessed to serve as a “stay-at-home” mom to our wonderful son Toby.
When we are not working, we love to travel and most recently spent two weeks in Scotland.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year at DMS and am excited about joining the Wildcat Family

When checking PowerSchool, please remember:

  •  Checking PowerSchool regularly is the best way to stay informed about how you are doing in class and on top of your grades. 

    • You can click on the grade for language arts, and PowerSchool will display the assignments included in that grade.  
    • View details to see a description or a hyperlink to the document. 
    • If an assignment is marked “--” by the grade, the teacher has not yet entered the grade.  
    • If the assignment was not turned in (marked “M” for missing, "L" for late, and “0” for no grade earned), you can turn it in to the Late Tray for up to a week after the due date. If you were absent when it was originally due, please indicate it on the sheet. 
    • Assignments cannot be turned in more than a week after the due date. 
    • If an assignment is turned in late, please understand that it will be a few days (usually until the following Friday) before the grade will be updated.
    • Classwork will not be accepted late under any circumstances. If I accidentally give a student a 0 for classwork and they were absent from class, please email me or speak to me in class and I will fix the grade.
