Sara loves to teach and to learn. Her students’ aha moments of comprehension, their wonderment at God’s world, and their sheer delight of learning bring her both joy and blessing. Beginning her career in the semiconductor industry, she knew even then the excitement of training other engineers. With a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, she naturally enjoys teaching math classes to homeschoolers and tutoring math students from private and public schools.

Eighteen years ago at the birth of her first daughter, Sara turned her attention toward home and began cultivating her passion for the classical Christian tradition and pursuing mastery of the English language. Homeschooling her own five children has brought Sara opportunities to serve as a co-op director, a trainer and manager of other directors and teachers, and a keynote speaker at homeschooling parent seminars. Over the past seven years, Sara has taught English using a variety of curricula including two years of teaching literature and writing online. In addition to her current role as teacher, she serves on the Wilson Hill Academics leadership team as the Dean of the Lower School.

Sara lives in upstate South Carolina with her husband Jon and their five children, ranging from college to kindergarten. A good book, a cup of coffee, and a supply of dark chocolate are never too far from her reach.
