CHS Announces  Two Teacher of the Year Winners

𝗧𝗲𝗮𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗬𝗲𝗮𝗿  CHS - Mrs. Sara Lahr

Mrs. Lahr teaches Sophomore English at CHS. She's been teaching for 7 years and has been at CPS since 2013. 

Being a Zebra means treating every student as my own and giving them a sense of safety, importance, and acceptance. She knows CHS is family and are here to support each other. 

She chose to teach at CHS because of the amazing people who encouraged and helped her through her internship.  She knew this is where she could grow and thrive.

Her life mantra is, "slow down and embrace the possibility of a new day" and "live your passion and you will experience the greatest joy in life."
"Be the person you needed growing up"  is part of her teaching philosophy. Enriching students' understanding of literature and writing is important, but she also wants to be someone students can depend on. She is their loudest cheerleader while challenging them to be their best selves.
