A qualified preschool teacher in the UK, Sarah moved to Canada in 2016 and loves the nature and the people here in Vancouver. Sarah has qualifications in Early Childhood Education, Fine Art, and Museum & Gallery studies (amongst others), and a Reggio Emilia Mentor certificate. Sarah began her career in early childhood education as an art teacher and has many years of experience in education, leadership, and management, including managing daycares, and in HR. Children bring her so much joy, and her favourite thing about her job is that every day is different. She believes that all children deserve the opportunity to access a safe, welcoming, and engaging school environment that reflects their community, and is led by capable and perceptive adults. She loves travelling, camping, exploring art galleries and museums, reading, learning and music, along with volunteering and serving on a Board in her local community.
