She was also selected as Concho Valley Educator of the week during the 2018-19 school year for her dedication to helping students overcome barriers to education. Sarah attends Mary Hardin-Simmons University pursuing her doctorate in educational leadership.  She aspires to share her unique experiences in education and knowledge as an educator to enhance the learning climate for the schools she serves.
