Hi! I'm Sarah. I'm a recent graduate of Teachers College, Columbia University, where I earned my Master's in the Teaching of English. Having studied English literature and psychology at the University of California, Irvine, I spent the last five years working with youth to become stronger, more confident readers and writers. Now residing in New York City, I hope to foster the same excitement and enthusiasm for reading and writing that was instilled in me as a young student. Currently, I am exploring ways to disrupt the traditional English classroom and bring new kinds of content to the forefront.
