Grandview Heights Schools

Hello! I am Mr. Sauer (rhymes with flower) the visual art teacher at EILMS teaching all grades 4th - 8th. I am a life-long Columbus resident, graduate of the Ohio State art education program, and have been working in different educational capacities for more than 20 years. The 2017 - 18 school year marks my 10th as an art teacher in Grandview. In my time in Grandview Schools I have been fortunate enough to work in each building (including the annex!) and with every grade level, K - 12. However, I must admit that I am very happy to have found a permanent home here at EILMS!

In addition to teaching art, I also love creating it. I am so fortunate to have a job that allows me to practice my craft by woking on a lifelong hobby. Although I have always held simple pencil drawing as my favorite medium, I have found painting with acrylics and watercolors has become my medium of choice over the last 10 to 15 years. Aside from creating art, I love walking the woods, birdwatching, kayaking, camping, playing golf, landscaping, gardening and hanging out with my large family.

Both my wife Stacy, and our dog Avery, work here at Edison Intermediate/Larson Middle School. It's a family affair!
