Sarah began herteaching career in Asheville, NC, where she taught at a public Montessori school in both early childhood and lower elementary classrooms. She also worked as a math and literacy interventionist for kindergarten students in the NH public school system.

Working towards my Montessori Teacher Certification proved an invaluable experience, revolutionizing my approach in guiding young learners. In the classroom, she places great importance on always modeling the behaviors and modes of communication she asks of children, on supporting young learners as they explore the diversity of cultures and human experiences, and on intentionally creating a space that sparks curiosity, invites exploration, and builds responsibility.

Currently Sarah holds a New Hampshire K-6 Educator License, and received her B.A. in Elementary Education with a focus on Math/Computer Science from Boston College in 2017.
