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. She thoroughly enjoyed studying abroad in both Israel and London during college. 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 starting a master’s program at GW this year with a focus in curriculum and instruction. In her spare time, you can find her playing on her recreational soccer team, reading a new book (recommendations encouraged!), training for a half marathon, attending a Soul Cycle class, watching UNC basketball, or trying to keep up with her fantasy football league (advice welcomed!). She is thrilled to start her second year as a first grade teacher at Brent, and is very much looking forward to the year ahead!
