Sarah Gallagher, Trustee

Sarah Gallagher

Sarah and her two children joined the WMS family in the fall of 2017. Having taught high school English at The Overlake School for almost two decades, Sarah knew of WMS many years before her own children, Harriett and George, became students in the Fig and Pine classes. Seeing her children thrive and grow under Montessori methods, Sarah has become a firm believer in Montessori education. In addition to bringing to the Board her experience as an educator, Sarah also brings her background as an attorney, having taken a brief hiatus from teaching to pursue a law degree. She holds Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) and Master in Teaching (MIT) degrees from Seattle University. Sarah has enjoyed weeding and planting with the Fig class, running in support of the Pine class, and cooking in celebration of all WMS faculty and staff. Sarah is excited to expand her WMS volunteer time to work on the Board.
