My name is Sarah Conley, I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. I completed my undergraduate degree in Anthropology with minors in Social Welfare and Sociology at a university in Tennessee. I was working as a special education paraeducator when I decided to return to school for my teaching license. All of the teachers I worked alongside and admired were Lewis & Clark alumni, so I was inspired to attend Lewis & Clark’s elementary educator program to follow in their footsteps. I hope to teach in an elementary or middle school program and return to Lewis & Clark for my special education endorsement in the future.
