Since that day, she has been educating the masses about fighting our two enemies: bias & variability, and maintaining focus on the #1 job of any statistician-- translating statistics into English for common folk. Sarah uses simulation-based activities to ensure her students are good consumers of data (and also to keep them from sleeping in class). Her passion is helping teachers love statistics as much as she does, and she especially enjoys learning from the experiences of workshop participants!
