Sarah Jacobs

Hometown: Scarsdale, NY

Education: Science in Society, Wesleyan University

Sarah just graduated from Wesleyan University, where she majored in Science in Society with a concentration in Sociology and Biology. At Wesleyan, Sarah participated in multiple tutoring and outreach programs that partnered with local elementary and middle schools to provide support for students in various subjects. Sarah also ran a radio show featuring music by female-identifying and gender-queer artists, which she will miss. Last summer, Sarah served as a social work intern at Lawyers for Children, a law firm providing legal representation and social work services to kids and young adults currently or formerly in foster care. Recognizing the critical and uniquely impactful role of teachers in the supporting the development, trajectory, and sense of confidence and competence in students, Sarah cannot wait to apply her skills (while learning a myriad of new ones) and her prior experience to teaching 8th grade math this school year.
