Elementary Teachers

Hannah Corker, PreK Teacher

I have taught Pre-K at PCA for 3 years and was a pre-k teacher in the public school system for a year before that. I have been teaching since 2018 and have an Early Childhood Education Certification from Ashworth College in Norcross Georgia.  I have 3 cats and a dog named Harbor.  I love to read, crochet, and be with family. My favorite thing in life is being able to teach littles about Jesus.

Sarah Ortner, 1st Grade Teacher

I have been at PCA as a 1st-grade teacher for 3 years and was a PreK teacher here at PCA for 8 years. I have been teaching full-time since 2010 when I graduated from Athens State University with a degree in Elementary Education. My husband Chad is a pastor here in Harvest. We have 2 children, Connor and Savanah, and a shih-tzu named Chewy. I love spending time with family and friends, reading, being outdoors, laughing, and music. Teaching and Jesus are both passions in my life, and being able to combine both in my classroom each day is an honor.
