Sarah Leibel is lecturer on education and master teacher in residence in English Language Arts for the Harvard Teacher Fellows Program. Prior to coming to the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE), Leibel was the visiting director of elementary education at Brown University. She earned both her M.A.T. in secondary English and her B.A. in comparative literature from Brown. She has served as a mentor teacher and methods instructor with The Brown Masters in Teaching Program, and has led professional development for new urban teachers. Her work as a teacher educator is informed by her six years teaching English Language Arts at a public urban charter school, her experience teaching academic writing to predominantly first generation college students, as well as her work administering a school-based mentoring program for high need middle school students in San Francisco and leading outdoor adventures to connect children ages six through seventeen to farm, wilderness, and each other. Leibel's belief in the power of relationships, relevance and rigor guides her teaching practice at all levels. She is honored to be joining the founding faculty of the Harvard Teacher Fellows Program.
