Sarah has worked with Lower, Middle and Upper School students at Bay Ridge Prep for over fourteen years. Born in Athens, Georgia, she fell in love with languages at a young age and studied French and Italian in addition to specializing in Spanish. Her passion for Hispanic culture led her to complete her studies in Madrid and travel throughout Spain, learning to appreciate the cultural distinctions of each region. She continues to be an avid traveler, exploring different cities in Mexico and Spain every summer. Some of her other favorite experiences were visiting Machu Picchu in Peru, Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador. Back in New York, Sarah enjoys dancing salsa and merengue and is learning Flamenco. A member of her drama and glee clubs in high school and college, she now composes songs for her classes and directs them in Spanish plays.
