Know Your Pelicans

Meet Sarah Strauss

Upper School History Teacher

Know Your Pelicans

What do you teach? What is one of your favorite parts of the curriculum? 

I teach Upper School History (US History, Documenting Change and AT Archives). I love teaching students how to conduct original research—whether in the Packer archives, for a documentary film, or their 10th Grade research paper.

What is something that most Packer people wouldn't know about you?

I took a year abroad during college. I went to Toronto, because I wanted to go to another country, but I didn’t want to be without baseball!

What’s one thing you love about your colleagues?

There are a lot of very kind and good-hearted people on the faculty and staff at Packer.

What is your favorite space on campus and why? 

The chapel is my favorite space because I can feel the school’s history in that room.
