Sarah Devers began her teaching career at a bilingual IB World School in Reñaca, Chile.  After returning to the United States, Sarah taught 5-12 grade Spanish language students in St. Paul and St. Louis Park before joining the ISLA’s community as a sixth grade Spanish immersion teacher in 2011. Through her own curiosities and love of language, she enjoys modeling what it means to be a lifelong learner.  Her experience in the IB PYP has led her to develop a keen understanding of transdisciplinary teaching and curriculum design that provides students with authentic and engaging learning experiences. As ISLA’s Dean of Academics, Sarah is passionate about approaching assessment and teacher development with values rooted in ISLA’s mission to empower the whole child and the International Baccalaureate’s mission to create a better world through education.  She is proud and grateful to be a part of ISLA’s dynamic team of educators. Sarah earned her Bachelor of Science in Spanish, TESOL and Art from the University of Wisconsin River Falls and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Hamline University.
