About Me

Sarah has a degree in Theater Arts and a Masters degree in Education. She discovered her passion for Creative Drama as an intern at the Seattle Children's Theater. She then taught first grade in Phoenix, Arizona and in Helsinki, Finland. She sees drama as an excellent resource for social, intellectual, and physical development and a vital component of primary and preschool education. Upon moving back home to California she was lucky to be able to focus on raising her family and teaching drama classes to the youngest of performers! She loves the structure of Pyjama Drama classes because it allows for a safe and joyful learning experience.
