Sarah Graywood teaches English and History at Fusion Academy Lincoln Park.
She attended graduate school at the University of Chicago where she earned a Master’s of Social Sciences with a focus on Sociology and Political Science. Before coming to Chicago, she earned a Bachelor’s degrees in Feminist Studies (focus on Law, Politics, and Social Change) and Sociology at the University of California Santa Cruz, graduating in the top 10% of her class.
She has taught as a substitute teacher at three different districts across two states. Prior to working as a teacher, she worked mentoring “at-risk” young women in Watsonville, California at a program called GirlZpace that she, herself, had been enrolled in during high school. She has over ten years of experience in the fields of mentoring and education.
Sarah enjoys doing arts and crafts in her free time, making succulent arrangements, and following and making fashion blogs. Her ideal relaxation time is hanging out with her husband, her cats, and a good book.
During the first week of high school Sarah fell down a set of stairs in the middle of the quad in front of all the seniors at her school. Though it was deeply embarrassing, she actually ended up with some great friends out of it. She is famously clumsy and frequently knocks things over.
