Instructor Profiles

2012.Oct.Snuffy (2)

Sarah is a museum professional, early childhood educator and Mom in Northern Virginia.  Since high school she has been fascinated by museums and their potential for education.  After graduating with a degree in history from the University of Maine, she attended the Museum Education Program at The George Washington University earning a M.A.T in Museum Education.

Since then, she has worked in the education department at a variety of museums including the National Museum of American History, the Sewell-Belmont House, the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., the International Spy Museum and the National Building Museum.  During that time she designed and ran public programs, led tours, wrote curriculum and assisted with the exhibit design process with a focus on education through interactive content.

She also worked for three years as a classroom teacher at the Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center, a museum-lab school that emphasizes object-based learning.  During this time, she earned enough Early Childhood Education credits to become lead-teacher certified through the National Association for the Education of Young Children. She currently teaches at FB Meekins Cooperative Preschool and is finishing her Associates Degree in Child Development.

Working with children from 3-5 years old, Sarah became fascinated with young children as museum visitors and how to combine the best practices of early childhood education with the unique attributes of a museum.   Cabinet of Curiosities LLC is the result of that interest and she hopes to bring the wonder of museums to young children throughout the Washington, D.C. area.
