Sarah Yankelevitz - Teaching Associate 

Sarah Yankelevitz is a Los Angeles native who began her career in education as soon as she graduated from college in San Francisco in 2012. When she moved back to Los Angeles, she began working in elementary schools around LA, which led her to apply - and later on graduate from - Colorado College’s Master of Arts in Teaching program with a multiple subjects degree in elementary education. During her time in graduate school in Colorado Springs, Sarah had the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors while working with a diverse range of learners in grades K-6. She then was able to complete the remainder of her student teaching in New South Wales, Australia, where she became deeply humbled by the rural and gracious community that welcomed her with open hearts and minds. After graduating from the MAT program in 2015, Sarah knew she wanted to begin her career as an educator back in her hometown of Los Angeles. Her passion for embracing the insights, experiences, and knowledge that all students bring to the classroom continues to motivate her as she learns and grows in this profession and she looks forward to her second year of being a part of the progressive and collaborative community at CWC Mar Vista.
