About Me
I grew up in rural Vermont and have spent the last 13 years living, working, and studying in Boston; Philadelphia;Tokyo, Japan; Chengdu, China; and Managua, Nicaragua. I earned my masters at Tufts University, completed my teaching license for high school Social Studies, and conducted research on Bilingual Education and English Language Learners in Massachusetts pubic schools. In my work with Boston area school districts and educational non-profit organizations, I have developed expertise and led professional development for K12 teachers and administrators on a range of topics: Community Service Learning, High School Social Studies Curriculum Development, High School Literacy Curriculum Development, Adapting K12 Curricula for English Language Learners, Database Development and Implementation, and Participatory Action Research. I have held a variety of teaching and leadership positions in both traditional and non-traditional education settings, most recently working in the Boston Public Schools coaching and teaching Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Special Education at the high school level. I completed her BA at Swarthmore College where I met my husband and studied Education, Political Science, and Latin American Studies. We are in the process of relocating to New York City as graduate students, and I plan to pursue school and district leadership positions in the New York area in conjunction with my work as part of the Urban Education Leaders Program 2009 Cohort at Teachers College, Columbia University.

When you leave teaching...

Posted on August 16, 2009 at 12:31pm 2 Comments


When you leave teaching, beware. You are more powerful, capable, and resourceful than you could have ever imagined possible. Though we endeavor every day as teachers to be the super human beings who sacrifice sleep, sustenance, and hydration, hurtling ourselves at the massive challenges facing our schools and students, we doubt our own efficacy. Suspended in the motion of moments too intense and important to be anything other than 100% present, we… Continue

Hi Sarah,

If your interest includes Education Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.

Here’s a Public Class on Technology Integration you might be interested in.
