Meet Coach Saxton

Sarah Saxton, M. Ed

Cheerleading is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to work with you and your

child. This will be my eighth year coaching for Dowell Middle School. Within the past eight years

of coaching, we have obtained cheer mats, grown our squad in numbers, cheered for

SMU, TCU and Texas A&M. We experience countless team builders, participate in community service hours and foster a wonderful program for future female leaders! Professionally, I have a M.Ed in Linguistics and a second M.Ed in Educational Leadership. I teach 8th grade Target ELAR and Academic ELAR. I enjoy fitness, Zumba, reading, riding and spending time with my 2 sons, Christopher and Patrick.

I look forward to meeting you all and working with you!
