Waste prevention outreach specialist
Sarah’s love and respect for the Earth began with her upbringing on a 4-acre homestead in rural West Virginia where she developed a strong relationship with nature and an understanding of what it takes to be a good steward of the land. Early childhood experiences of bootstrapping family travels through Mexico and Central America broke down cultural barriers and instilled a sense of global citizenship.
She earned a B.A. in Spanish with a minor in Education, then moved to Spain to work as an English language assistant in a public elementary school outside Madrid. An AmeriCorps term of service in the Sonoran Desert pulled many aspects of her experiences together as she created environmentally focused service-learning programs for youth.
Sarah comes to Metro with over a decade of experience as an educator, working with children as young as two up to 17 years old in formal and informal settings. Since 2013, she has dedicated herself to Montessori early childhood education, for which she holds a M Ed. from Loyola University.
"I believe that children are the hope for the future and can change the world if given the knowledge and tools." - Sarah
