Alumnus Sarah Larrabee graduated in 2011 and went to Dallas Baptist University. While in high school Larrabee participated in Band and Colorguard/Winterguard.
What have you done since high school?
“After high school I went to college at Dallas Baptist University and majored in history with a minor in communications,” Larrabee said. “I worked on campus as well in the Cashier’s Office. After I graduated in 2015 I got a job teaching at Lamar High School in Arlington.”
What made you want to do what you’re doing now?
“All the awesome teachers I had while at Legacy like Mrs. Hurst, Mr. Davis, Mrs. Gent, Mr. Austin and many more really inspired me and made me want to be a great teacher like them,” Larrabee said.
Explain your job.
“I teach Pre-ap world geography and AP human geography so my students are mainly freshmen and sophomores,” Larrabee said. “My day is spent basically just hanging out with my students and learning at the same time. I try to have lots of activities in my class or jokes so it is at least fun while the kids have to do work. No day is ever the same.”
What is your advice to current high schoolers?
“My advice to current students is to take school seriously but to have fun with it at the same time,” Larrabee said. “Get involved in stuff and make good friends. It makes the whole experience way better.”
