Our Team Lineup

Sarah Mattie, Editor

Prior to becoming a content production editor, Sarah Mattie spent about a decade working in education. She began that career as an English language learner aide, ultimately earning a master’s degree in theatre education and working in public and private schools as a language arts and theatre teacher. During that time, she co-wrote curricula for two institutions and developed after-school programming. As an educator-turned-content editor, she strives to make sure that teachers get the information they need in a way that shows an understanding of their day-to-day joys and struggles. Since you can’t fully take the classroom out of the teacher, Sarah Mattie continues to work as a freelance teaching artist.
