Current Staff and Students
Program Coordinator - Citizen Science & Schoolyard Gardens
Sarah Weaver believes that informed and empowered kids can make an incredible impact on our environment and our future (ask about her salmon story). Sarah is truly grateful to work with the Monarch Lab because she gets to support teachers and students getting outside to discover, learn, conserve and experience nature.
She graduated from Hamline University (1999) and completed her master’s degree at the University of Minnesota (2010). Her research focused on a pesticide called permethrin and its impact on monarch butterfly growth and survival. In the classroom Sarah enjoyed 7 years teaching at Washington Technology Magnet Middle School in the St. Paul Public School District. She continues to volunteer in St. Paul Schools and maintains a 5-12 classroom teaching license. Sarah enjoys spending time with her family and teaching dance (ballet, modern and Irish).
