Many staff and students around here call her Science Sara. She is the Science Instructional Specialist and one of the House Parents for Aspen House. She originally hails from Ohio, but she now considers Colorado home. Before coming to Eagle Rock, Sara spent many years teaching and working with youth in different ways. She spent time in the Peace Corps in rural Morocco as a youth development volunteer, taught ESL at Horizon Science Academy in Columbus, Ohio, taught science at a nature center in New Hampshire, and led international service and adventure trips for high school students with The Road Less Traveled. She has a background in Biology and Exercise Science from Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. Sara is endlessly curious about the world around her, and she encourages her students to authentically be the same.
