Sara Martin

Sara was born and raised in Colorado and is excited to be back in Denver after living in Austin, where she completed a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Texas. Before moving south, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Latin American Studies and Spanish from Colorado State University where she had the opportunity to study in Argentina and the Dominican Republic. Sara’s pursuit to serve her community grew into a passion for education and adolescents after she spent two years as an Americorps volunteer with the I Have a Dream Foundation. She has continued to work for social justice, access to higher education and supporting social emotional learning through holistic perspectives and is excited to be joining Rise Up Community School. In her free time Sara enjoys running, salsa dancing and traveling!
