Pedagogy Fellow in Government
Sarah is a 6th year doctoral student in Government and Social Policy. She broadly studies causes of inequality at the state and local level, and she is particularly interested in how and when state public officials learn that policies they have implemented are not producing the desired results. Sarah’s research also explores the changing political party dynamics in the United States, with a focus on rightward shifts among the states. Prior to graduate school, Sarah worked in K-12 education for 5 years, first as a math and history teacher, and later serving as a high school principal. She has a B.A. in Plan II Honors and Government from University of Texas at Austin and a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Boston University. This is her second year as the Government Pedagogy Fellow.
