2016-2017 will be Sarah's second year at Alpine Elementary. Prior to working at Alpine, Sarah taught Middle School Special Education for 1 year on the island of Maui in Hawaii at a STEM, outdoor learning school. Sarah lived in Hawaii for 2 years and worked as a certified labor and birth doula for the first year. Before moving to Hawaii, Sarah taught in Colorado Springs for 3 years. Sarah has always had a passion for special education and has worked in the field as a para-educator or teacher for 10 years. 
When not at school, Sarah enjoys reading, working in her garden, playing with her son (a preschool student at Alpine), and hiking fourteeners. Sarah looks forward to starting her second year at Alpine with the great Special Education team.
