Being a teacher was far from Sarah Williams’ mind when she thought about what to do as a career. But God had other plans. Sarah is now a dynamic educator whose experience span far beyond the classroom and reach beyond borders.
Sarah’s journey as an educator has taken her on a whirlwind from teaching third grade students at Pleasantdale Elementary School in Atlanta, Georgia to completely outside of her comfort zone in Grahamstown, South Africa. Every lesson learned through her journey is implemented in the one place where her true gift lies – her classroom. Her classroom is where she commands the absolute best from her students. She is definitely the world’s undiscovered solution to society’s biggest challenge; which is effectively educating our youth.
Sarah is a graduate of the University of Georgia where she earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Child and Family Development. During her time at UGA, she completed her student teaching at Kingswood College in Grahamstown, South Africa. She also volunteered at the Lebone Centre where she taught children infected or affected with HIV.
God called her on another mission that was to return to South Africa to finish her work. She is currently a student at the prestigious Rhodes University pursuing a Bachelor’s in Education Honors Degree. Through her coursework, she volunteers at the local township schools helping with their Reading Initiative Project. She has also returned to the Lebone Centre as a full time volunteer, giving herself fully to her students.
Sarah is proof that in order to connect with any type of student, sometimes it’s imperative to branch out of the four walls of the classroom. Through her experiences, she has become a vessel boiling over with talent and unlimited potential in a world full of unlimited possibilities.
