Sarah Jenkins

Director of Policy Research and Strategic Initiatives

Areas of Expertise: academic research, writing, policy analysis

“I believe that education is one piece in creating a better society, and I love the potential for personalized learning to break the system of an unknown individual or entity deciding how all children should learn. It puts kids, families and communities in the driver’s seat to determine how to meet their own needs and achieve their own goals.”

Based in Denver, Colorado, Sarah leads education policy research and has contributed to various publications and resources around how districts and states can better position themselves for scaling personalized learning.

Before coming to KnowledgeWorks, Sarah was a fellow at the Donnell-Kay Foundation and an elementary school teacher. Sarah graduated from University of Michigan with a bachelor’s degree and is currently pursuing a PhD in Public Affairs from University of Colorado-Denver.
