“I was greeted by our NBC’s ‘Smash’: Make a Musical team leader, Sarah, as I walked through the doors of Wheaton High School.... Sarah is a brand-new teacher, who could not wait to absorb everything possible to make this honor the school has received a reality for her kids. This gal has “it”. By “it” I mean that indescribable work ethic that is unstoppable, eager, optimistic, prepared and open-minded. Sarah loves children and is clearly an educator with a purpose – and an exciting one at that.” -Cindy Ripley, iTheatrics, Smash Make-a-Musical Teaching ArtistMCPS Video News Story on SMASH Make-a-Musical Grant At Wheaton
