Meet Sarah

Hello! I'm Sarah and I am 38 years old. I recently moved to Chicago from Olympia, WA, where I was a substitute teacher and owner/farmed my own organic farm and vineyard. I am currently working on my Masters Degree in Nutrition and I'm also working as a substitute teacher here in Chicago. Family, mainly my nephew and soon-to-be here nephew live here in the city, and I was too far away. I have worked with children since I was 13, when I started babysitting. I was a nanny for a family in Olympia, WA, I have coached two swim teams, taught swim lessons, worked as a paraprofessional along with substitute teaching, just to give some idea of my experience and background with kids. While attending Portland State University, I worked and volunteered at the Learning Garden Laboratories, where I gained experience educating junior high students about organic farming, cooking and Read more sustainable living.
