FIRST GRADE-LEAD TEACHER: SARAH ISAACSON
Sarah Isaacson is originally from Greensboro, North Carolina. She attended Elon University and received a B.A. in Corporate Communications. After graduating from Elon, she moved to the DC area to work on a governor’s campaign in Maryland. Shortly after, she began working at the KIPP DC headquarters office. Teaching has always been her passion, which led her to become certified in elementary education the following year.
Throughout her career, she has taught prekindergarten, first and second grade. She is going into her seventh year of teaching. She recently graduated with her M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from George Washington University. She is starting to work towards her M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision from University of Virginia this year. In her spare time, you can find her playing on her recreational soccer team, reading a new book (recommendations encouraged!), attending a cycling class, traveling with family or friends, eating at a new restaurant (always on the lookout!), or trying to keep up with her fantasy football league (advice welcomed!). She is thrilled to start her fourth year as a first grade teacher at Brent, and is very much looking forward to the year ahead!
