My name is Saumirah McWoodson, and I am a second grade teacher in Sacramento, California. I have worked in education for over a decade, including founding my own dance education organizations–Dance Daze, Inc. and Dance Daze in Schools.


MissMcWoodson My philosophy as an educator includes creating environments where students are inspired to become lifelong learners. I believe that students can be challenged at all levels of learning and I take pride in developing a strong sense of self-efficacy in my students. Creating opportunities for students to integrate movement, music, visual arts, and technology into their academic work is a passion of mine and I aim to do this each week in my classroom.

IMG_3035I hold a Master of Arts degree in Curriculum and Instruction, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from the University of the Pacific. I volunteer locally as a member of the Junior League of Sacramento and as an advocate for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

I hope that parents, students, and fellow educators will find my teacher website helpful!
