Sarah Baxter

Miss Sarah Baxter is a proud mama to Leon, who will be a third grader at Terra Arts this year. Sarah has cultivated a rich and diverse career spanning the last 20 years, centered around performance arts, helping others and teaching. 

She trained, performed and toured with the prestigious Southern California Children’s choir, studied Classical Voice Technique with Drs. Ricardo Soto and Robin Frey-Monel, and obtained her AA Degree in Foreign Languages and a minor in music. 

She has performed on concert stages and intimate venues for a variety of musical experiences throughout the West Coast, ranging from choral, musical theater, pop and folk rock to Opera. She also co-produced a series of community-based art/music/dance concept shows from 2009-2013, while continuing to perform and teach voice and dance, and facilitating music and movement for families with very young children through Music Together.    

She received her TEFL/TESOL certificate in 2020. Since then, she has continued performing as a vocalist and dancer, and has recently begun teaching voice acting, basic English, public speaking, hand sewing and writing. She is a “Let the Voice Out” method approved vocal instructor, and is always actively training and improving her skills in order to bring out the best in herself and students of all ages. 

She thoroughly enjoyed her first year as an instructor at Terra Arts as Katherine Lockhart’s hand-sewing assistant and co-teacher, and is delighted to return to Terra Arts as a homeschool educator this fall. She will be co-teaching with Ms. Esther Yardley for our Junior High program, and as the theater instructor for our Elementary Doer Day students.

She is currently studying executive function and how it helps students (and their parents!) She loves languages (at one point she was fluent in three and studying a fourth, and is teaching the foundation of foreign languages for our Jr. Highers this year.) She is a huge book nerd, and in her rare free time loves reading, spoiling her cats, drawing and consuming vast quantities of home-made chocolate.
