Born in New Orleans, Sarah spent most of her youth in the warm sunshine of Florida, before moving to Boulder to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies from CU. After graduation, Sarah spent time traveling in Africa before settling down to raise a family. She quickly realized her love of teaching after volunteering in her own children's classrooms, and obtained her teaching certification through the University of Denver. Sarah received her M.A. from the University of Northern Colorado, in Curriculum Design. She has a passion for inquiry-based, arts-integrated learning that supports the whole child, and has taught kindergarten, first and fourth grades. In her spare time, Sarah enjoys time with her two amazing teenage children, two adorable dogs, spending time in nature, and is an avid hiker, camper, climber, hot springs swimmer and explorer, who loves connecting with the people and places around her.
