School District

Gretchen Sarver


My name is Gretchen Sarver and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Curtisville Primary Center.  I have taught at Deer Lakes since 1997.  Prior to Deer Lakes I graduated from Clarion University, substituted in local school districts for a year, and then, taught in 5th grade in Virginia.  I started my career at Deer Lakes teaching 6th grade Math, Science, and Social Studies.  I am happy to say that I found my true love for teaching when I was offered a Kindergarten teaching position!  When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading books, taking walks with my dog, and spending time with my family.
