She graduated with her bachelor's in elementary education from Penn State University in 2008. After a one-year stint teaching in Killeen, Texas, she moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where she has been teaching first and second grade in the Harrison School District for the past ten years.
Sarah demonstrated a passion for training and developing student teachers and new staff, especially in the areas of math, small group literacy, and behavior management. Sarah is a Distinguished Teacher in the Harrison School District and was honored to be the recipient of the Milken Educator Award in 2018 for the state of Colorado.
Sarah is currently working as an instructional coach at Pikes Peak Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year, where she is focusing on creating growth in the building via data collection and analysis, remediation and intervention, and fostering engaging bell-to-bell instruction.
When she isn't working, Sarah loves to enjoy all of the beauty Colorado has to offer. On the weekends, you can find her hiking, kayaking, or snowboarding in the Rocky Mountains with her fiancé Brandon. She also admits to having a "Food Network obsession," and loves to cook for her family and friends. Sarah is thrilled to be a part of NIET's Educator Advisory Board, and looks forward to helping create positive change through this opportunity.
