• Lives in Fredericksburg, VA Works everywhere.

    I opened Learning Heroine LLC in 2015. As a homeschooling mom of three kids (one of whom has complex learning needs including: Down syndrome, autism, dysgraphia, dyslexia, and dyscalculia), I recognized a need to apply my teaching and professional research/advocacy skills to provide custom learning solutions for families and their individual learners in the Fredericksburg, Virginia area and surrounding counties of Spotsylvania, Stafford, Caroline, and Culpepper counties.

  • About Me

    I am an education consultant, independent research historian, professional advocate (Special Needs and Exceptional), teacher, and writer (my scholarship is a Master’s thesis on Slavery in Fredericksburg). In my pre-mom life, I taught Social Studies and numerous electives at the highly acclaimed Open High School in Richmond, Virginia from 2002-2003, and as a substitute teacher in 2004. I enjoyed working as a graduate teaching assistant while completing my Master's degree in History at Virginia Commonwealth University from 2004-2005. Sharing the learning journey with my own children is the most rewarding (and challenging) journey. Homeschooling styles, educational theory, brain development, genetics, bioethics, and eugenics are all topics of deep research for me.

     

     
    As a 200 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher RYT, I gratefully offer Radiant Spectrum Yoga as the Mindfulness and Movement branch of Learning Heroine LLC, which serves all populations; specializing in prenatal, postnatal, and children's unique yoga needs. Radiant Spectrum Yoga also offers trauma sensitive adaptions (Sarah is a trauma survivor) and more gentle/therapeutic style accommodations for all levels and classes with respect to all genders, religious affiliations, and people with unique developmental or accessibility needs. I am classically trained and offer eight-limbed, Full Spectrum Yoga classes which include: meditation, breath practices, ethical living/values, asanas/postures, understanding one's relationship in the universe, and building introspective self-practices.

  • TESTIMONIALS

    WHAT CLIENTS SAY

    Raquel

    "Sarah advocated for us in a peaceful and assertive manner. She kept us informed and followed our lead in what we were comfortable with and what we did not want. It was tough but I was glad to have Sarah on my team, helping me get the services my child needed."

    Caroline

    "She was wonderful with my son. She followed him around the house while he explained all the projects he had done over the year and she asked him questions that lead to really in depth discussions of his passions. She helped me formulate a plan for some areas that I felt Jeremiah was lacking in and handled the paper work that the school board needed.
    I'd recommend her a million times over. "

    Amy

    "Sarah is an excellent advocate with a strong desire to help students succeed, and she can easily adapt to any requirements relevant to her work. Her insatiable drive for knowledge makes her a competent and thorough researcher. "
