Science Teacher Sarah is an experienced, dynamic teacher who has made a very conscious decision to teach children outside of the traditional realm.
Fun, full of thousands of facts, and always willing to listen to children, Sarah has delighted them with hands-on science from Brooklyn to Riverside and everywhere in between. She is not afraid to demonstrate an earthquake before a baking soda and vinegar volcanic eruption or pick up tarantulas and snakes!
Long ago, Sarah began her love of science, art, and history in Connecticut but realized that she was being taught from books and not the world around her. She noticed a gap in the education of science due to a lack of enthusiasm, so she sought out to be the enthusiastic teacher she couldn't find. Sarah began teaching science when she was a babysitter and learned how to reach children, making each of them feel special and important. Knowing that science is the key to explaining how everything works, she found a way to combine facts and experiments, suitable for children of all levels. She teaches theory in a way everyone can understand and, with hands-on projects, reinforces concepts in a way everyone enjoys. For more than a decade, she has honed her technique, sparking a newfound love of science in children of all ages.
From Astronomy to Zoology, Sarah is a veritable encyclopedia of facts! She loves to answer all types of science questions and - on the rare occasions when she gets stumped - finding out the answers and relaying them back to the children. True scientists are lifelong learners, after all.
More than just science, Sarah teaches respect and manners. When students show an attempt at manners, they are rewarded with a good behavior prize. She believes that positive reinforcement is the best way to mold young minds and turns that belief into action in the classroom.
