About Sarah Hippert

Hello! This will be my third year at Clara Barton Open School, but my ninth year as a teacher in the Minneapolis Public Schools. Before joining the Barton community, I taught at Lucy Craft Laney school for six years. I also volunteered at and completed my student teaching experience at Marcy Open School in a 5th and 6th grade classroom. I am thrilled to continue my work as part of the progressive education community in Minneapolis.

I live in Southwest Minneapolis with my husband, Kevin, our two daughters, Madeleine (Maddie) and Audrey and our cat, Woody. Audrey is four and attending preschool this year near our home.  Maddie is six and starting first grade at Barton this year.


It is an honor for you to trust me with your child’s education. I believe open communication is vital to this work, so please let me know if you have a concern, suggestion or question.
