Art ~ Mrs. Sarah Platt - The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. ~Mark Van Doren

  • Hi, I'm Mrs. Platt!


     Sometimes it's easier for students and parents to connect with a teacher if they know a little about that teacher as an individual outside the classroom. 
    ~ I have been teaching at Hermon-DeKalb for the past 22 years.

    ~ Being creative came naturally to me at an early age. Becoming an Art Teacher fulfilled my goal to work with kids of all different ages.
    ~ I have a B.A. in Studio Art from SUNY Potsdam and a M.S. in General Professional Education.

    ~ On a personal note, my roots are local.  I am a graduate of Norwood-Norfolk Central School.  Currently I reside in Rensselaer Falls with my husband and we have two handsome sons; Zachary is 14 and Andrew is 13,  and they both attend HDCS.  In my free time, I LOVE to surf Pinterest for ideas, take pictures, play with my dogs Winnie & Lizzie, drive my VW Beetle, exercise and travel.
