Throughout her career working in schools, Sarah has seen how difficult it is for students with disabilities and their families to feel a sense of belonging to the school community. It has been powerful for Sarah to see the connections that authentic inclusion opportunities bring to students with and without disabilities during her work as a Best Buddies advisor and Special Olympics Unified Team coach. Sarah is honored to work with her school team - students, teachers, and families- to facilitate these programs at Marshall High School.

Congratulations to the following Marshall High School staff members who were also recognized at this year's FCPS Honors Ceremony!
