Sarah Hagerty is an AMI trained primary guide, and is excited to begin her first year as a lead guide after serving as an assistant in a Montessori classroom for four years. She was studying psychology at the University of Georgia when she was invited to observe in a primary classroom and immediately fell in love. She was inspired by the level of work the children were able to accomplish as well as the respect they showed for each other, the materials and the guide. She says she wanted to be a part of something that incredible and has been working toward that goal ever since. She says, “I am a firm believer that when the child is given freedom he will bloom.” Her favorite part of teaching is watching each child’s personality unfold as they begin their journey of becoming who they were created to be.
In her free time Sarah enjoys reading, running and playing with her dog Ellie.
