More About

After graduating from the University of Georgia in 2011, Sarah worked in rural Morocco as a Youth Development volunteer with the United States Peace Corps. Her primary areas of focus were capacity building in youth populations, community development, and girls’ empowerment.  Sarah deepened her understanding of the field of education after returning to the United States in 2014 while pursuing a Master’s at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE). Her research focused on the role of the arts in language acquisition, and she presented this research at the 2015 HGSE Student Research Conference.

From 2015 through 2017, Sarah served as the Director of the American School Language Institute in Fes, Morocco. She oversaw a group of 30 English instructors who taught over 400 students per semester. Her initiatives for the Institute included designing an extensive professional development program for instructors and several new student-centered English language curricula.

Sarah currently works for the University of Georgia as an Education Abroad Advisor with the Office of International Education. She oversees incoming exchange students and works with faculty to develop programming abroad. Sarah also works as a freelance curriculum designer, and has produced a variety of educational materials spanning multiple areas, including pre- and post-departure activities for American study abroad participants in partnership with Envoys, English language facilitator guides in partnership with the United States Embassy of Mexico, and a girls’ empowerment curriculum in partnership with Project Soar Morocco. In fall 2017, Project Soar’s empowerment curriculum was awarded a grant from the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) of the U.S. Department of State.
