With a passion for history rooted in childhood road trips across the United States, Sara began studying history at Hofstra University in 2009. After graduating in 2013 with a B.A. in History and Secondary Education Social Studies, Sara taught Economics and American History in New Orleans, LA . During her time in the “Big Easy,” Sara served as the Speech and Debate Coach, moderator of the Entrepreneurship Club, and level leader for Economics.
After completing her Masters in Curriculum Development and Instructional Technology at SUNY Albany, Sara and her husband moved to Greensboro, NC, where she taught American Studies and Ancient Civilizations. As the school reconfigured its administrative team, Sara was also given the task of serving as the Middle School Curriculum Coordinator. She collaborated with administrators and teachers to ensure smooth vertical and horizontal alignment of curricula.
When her husband took a position as a professor at James Madison University, Sara was thrilled to explore all that Virginia had to offer. Sara joins the Miller School as a Social Studies teacher and Instructional Technology Specialist. In her spare time, Sara enjoys traveling, hiking, and exploring her new neighborhood with her husband Joe and their two dogs, Margot and Harper.
