Sarah Vella

Sarah was born in New York and raised in Northern New Jersey. She went to Lafayette College to study math and philosophy before going to graduate school at Lehigh University to get her Masters degree in secondary education. From a young age  she knew she wanted to be a math teacher and now she was ready to transition from the child holding school sessions for her stuffed animals, to starting her career. After a brief long-term substitute position at Chatham Middle School, Sarah worked at Columbia High School as a math teacher for one year before joining Discovery in the 2016-2017 school year. Sarah has also been working as a private tutor since college primarily for high school students. She loves that moment when a concept clicks for a student after some productive struggle.
Outside of school Sarah enjoys traveling with her husband, baking, and spoiling her dog daughter, Daisy.
