Mrs. Sarah Curtiss was a Gratitude Garden parent since the school opened. She received her Bachelors Degree from Ohio University in Early Childhood Education and her Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Cincinnati.
Sarah moved to New York City after college where she was a transitional kindergarten teacher and private tutor. After two years at the school, Sarah was promoted to the position of Education Director. In this role, she supported the school by working directly with the teachers to provide curriculum refinement utilizing her knowledge of the most developmentally appropriate and current teaching practices in early childhood education.
Sarah and her husband moved to Orange County in 2013 and they started their family on the “best” coast. As a mother, Sarah strives to create meaningful and impactful experiences for her children. She believes the greatest teacher is the one who allows the individual child the ability to direct their own learning by actively supporting their curiosity while they are “messily” experimenting and discovering all about the world around them.
