Sara Goldberg is a bilingual teacher in the Wausau School District. She just finished her 11th year as an educator in the Wisconsin public schools. She previously has taught for the Milwaukee Public Schools and the Wautoma Area School District. Whether in a rural or urban setting, her work has focused on supporting marginalized student populations, reaching and connect with at- risk students, and ensuring the inclusion of diverse student bodies and their families. She realizes the importance of culturally- and linguistically responsive, student-driven, goal-oriented, authentic learning experiences that place value on students’ funds of knowledge. This doctoral program directly aligns with her previous work professionally, as well as her personal interests and perspective. Her graduate work through UW- Madison in the area of Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Global Studies was dedicated to designing alternative methods for teaching and learning. Emphasis was on transnational projects that transcended the four walls of the classroom to connect students with global peers through cross-curricular projects centered around language and literacy, art, poetry, social studies, culture and the environment through the mode of technology. She currently is a facilitator for the transnational program Global Story Bridges in conjunction with UW-Madison and other sites around the world. Through this doctoral program, she looks forward to homing in on her interests related to educational equity, linguistic and cultural preservation, access for underserved, marginalized populations, a humanistic approach toward people and environment, and the development of global citizenship with a respect toward local spaces.
