In her free time Sarah enjoys anything active and/or challenging. Finding and creating new work outs, getting out in nature on a new hiking trail, creating new dishes in the kitchen, painting, sailing, and of course photography. Sarah is thrilled to be back in Baldwin County and working at Bay Minette Middle School. She is excited about the upcoming school and adding her experience to an already amazing staff. Sarah’s philosophy can be summarized in one quote by Fred DeVito, “if doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.”
