Sarah Shaffer, Assistant Staff Director
Sarah discovered her passion for teaching while studying at Whitman college, where she led writing workshops and taught sea kayaking and outdoors skills. After graduating from Whitman with degrees in math and philosophy, she began teaching SAT classes before coming to LifeWorks in 2013. Today, she loves being able to tutor in an environment that supports students in their emotional, spiritual, and academic goals. In 2015, Sarah completed a year-long teaching program focused on integrating mindfulness practice into education. When Sarah is not working with youth she enjoys backpacking, cooking, and dancing.
