Sarah Fuentes

Sarah Fuentes is an educator and entrepreneur with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology, and two master’s degrees, one in education and one in mathematics and leadership. From the time she was three years old, she was reading and writing. As a classroom teacher for 15 years, she worked hard to give her students a quality education, and create new leaders who are risk-takers and independent thinkers, not robots. Realizing there are two education systems—one for the haves and one for the have-nots—she moved into school leadership to help create the kind of school where all students receive a quality education. As an instructional coach, Sarah helps teachers create strong relationships with students. She embraces her role as a political activist educator and disruptor. She created and produces Math Mini-Lessons, an online curriculum that helps students build a strong foundation in math by providing quality lessons, and engages students in investigating concepts and building new habits.
