Mrs. Lawlor is the curriculum director and librarian.
She grew up in Bellingham but it took living in other places to realize how much she loves it here, sandwiched between the ocean and mountains. She tries to run a half marathon in each of the four seasons, since training provides her with an excuse to be outside as the weather changes. She loves hiking, camping and taking dance classes. “I enjoy reading all kinds of books including a new love of reading cookbooks. I am part of a large family of six kids, and an even larger extended family. They have had one of the biggest impacts on my spiritual walk, and are ever present mirrors reflecting Christ into every corner of my heart.”
Philippians 3:12, 14, 20-21 is one of her favorite verses. “Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own….forgetting what is behind and straining towards what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus….But our citizenship is in heaven and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.”
“I want to finish my race well and along the way, cheer those around me on to finish strong,” said Sarah about how running gives her time to worship and bring Him her decisions and allow Him to convict, commune, rebuke and restore her soul.
Sarah attended Meridian High School and went on to Whatcom Community College. She also attended a Torchbearer Bible School in England. She then transferred to Western Washington University where she received her teaching certification. After graduation, she spent 1 ½ years subbing and then went to work at a Torchbearer Bible School in Austria. She has spent two summers teaching at the Migrant Head Start bilingual pre-school in Lynden and a summer teaching 3rd-5th grade Migrant summer school at Shuksan. She has also done leave replacements at local schools. “I am looking forward to seeing students grow and thrive with a rich education and a deeper understanding and love of Jesus Christ,” said Sarah about her goals at BCS.
