Sandi graduated with a BA in Social Work from West Chester State College and a MEd in Special Education from Penn State University. After teaching for 5 years in Idaho, she began her Alaskan adventure on the North Slope of Alaska in the village of Wainwright. Three years later, she moved to Anchorage where she taught and served the district in multiple capacities until 2013 when she joined the Alaska Statewide Mentoring Project.

“It is my belief that through effective mentoring, both student achievement and teacher retention can be influenced in a positive way. I am honored to be part of the Alaska Statewide Mentor Project where the needs of students and teachers in Alaska are our priority.”
"I am honored to be part of the ASD UGO Mentoring Team. I look forward to sharing in the enthusiasm and dedication that early career educators bring to their profession and collaborating with them as they touch the future through their students."
