My name is Sarah Steinmetz. I am a secondary teacher of ACT prep and Talented and Gifted Seminars. I have taught 8th grade science, alternative education math and science and high school science. I love working with children and seeing them reach their goals. It excites me to see where their next chapters in life will take place. Every child should be treated with respect, because every child has a unique story.  

My husband and I have a beautiful family of three daughters and a rabbit that lives outside. We love spending time outdoors. I spend my free-time running, baking, gardening, hiking and reading. However much free time remains is spent on gymnastics and swim teams between the girls. I love it and wouldn't change the busy schedule. 

I look forward to getting to know all of you in a Connecting Link course!

This course will educate participants on the difference of a fixed or growth mindset, and how Appreciative Inquiry (AI) can cultivate the classroom environment into a place of risk taking and success. Participants will learn about their own mindset and how it impacts students, as well as techniques for evaluating the growth mindset, strategies for reframing failures to successes, and devising lesson plans with the growth mindset in mind. Participants will also learn about Appreciative Inquiry and how it is among the growing trend of approaches to human development and organizational change. Focus on the power of positive question and imagery, sharing stories, and implementation of Dr. David Cooperrider’s 4-D cycle will be reviewed, along with implementation strategies. Participants will leave the course understanding how to create a dynamic classroom that fosters growth and compassion; that will create bonds with students to push them further and increase test scores.
