She was extremely goal driven in learning how to best serve the English Language Learners, therefore receiving two additional teaching certificates in ESL and Bilingual/Bicultural Education.

When Sarah is not working, you can find her spending time gardening, cooking, swimming, reading, watching movies, scoping out fashion trends, writing, listening to music and playing video games.
