Sarah Serrano – Humanities
B.A. in English, Tufts University
M.A.T. in Middle and Secondary Education, Tufts University
Born and raised in Chicago's Southside and Humboldt Park neighborhood, Sarah moved to Boston to complete her higher education at Tufts. Constructing her English major with an interdisciplinary focus on Black and Third World literature, history, and oral tradition, Sarah's academic focuses reflect her personal passions. As an undergrad, she was head of the university's Pan-Afrikan Alliance, a longstanding pro-black political organization on campus. She also participates in local to international grassroots activism that has taken her across the United States as well as continental Africa.
Prior to coming to Meridian, Sarah interned and co-taught humanities at Boston Arts Academy and taught English at Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School. Outside of her work, Sarah is a writer and artist, working mainly in creative writing, sculpting, and drawing that focuses on themes of race, colonialism, and the Black radical tradition. She also has a deep interest in herbalism. She is excited to be a part of the Meridian community.
