About Mrs. Dexheimer


My name is Sara Dexheimer, and I am currently in my twelfth year of teaching music at Fairview. I am very lucky to teach at such a wonderful school filled with awesome students! 

I was born and raised in Hannibal, Missouri - the hometown of the author Mark Twain. As a child I was very active in music. I sang at church, played the piano, participated in show choir and performed in many musicals. I always knew I would pursue a career in music, so after graduating high school I went to Northwest Missouri State University where I received my bachelor's and master's degrees in Music Education.   During my teaching career,  I have taken many hours of continuing education in general and music education and have earned my Level 2 Orff-Schulwerk certification.  I plan to earn my final Orff certification during the summer of 2019.

I currently live here in Columbia with my husband Billy and daughters Elizabeth and Maggie. We also have two cats: Carlos and Walter and one dog, Marty. My family loves music as much as I do. Elizabeth enjoys taking piano lessons and participating in church musicals. Maggie takes dance lessons, piano lessons, and loves to sing.

In my spare time I love hanging out with my family and friends. I also enjoy singing at church, camping, watching movies and baking (chocolate chip cookies are my favorite). My favorite color is purple, and my favorite restaurant is Flyover.  I also love Olive Garden.

I look forward to many more years of teaching music at Fairview! Go Falcons!!
