Meet the Associate Principal - Sarah Whaley

  • Sarah Whaley My name is Sarah Whaley and I am incredibly excited to join The Nest at Marana Middle School! This will be my 7th year as an administrator, all in the Marana Unified School District. I previously served as the Dean of Students and Athletic Director at Marana High School. Prior to that, I taught high school English in the Phoenix Union High School District and the Flowing Wells School District. I also coached multiple sports throughout my career.    

    I received a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education and English from Grand Canyon University and my Master’s in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I have been married to my husband, Scott, for seventeen years and together we have three school-aged children who are very active in sports and other activities. 

    I am honored to be a part of the Marana community. It is a community I truly love and I am very excited to be able to serve and support teachers, staff, and the student body at Marana Middle School. Go Falcons!!
