Sarah Prasad

She is an English major that teaches Critical Thinking and Composition at SJSU and her husband is a math major working in tech, so they have quite a range in their family. However, one thing they always agree on is the importance of education. Sarah hopes to contribute to the learning atmosphere at Guadalupe.
