Jeanne Sager is a member of the US marketing team at Teach Starter and comes to us with a Bachelor’s degree in Cultural Studies and background in both journalism and digital marketing. Jeanne joined Teach Starter in 2021 to share her passion for English Language Arts through our blogs and US social media platforms.
Jeanne’s inspiration for becoming a writer was born from the positive influence of her third-grade teacher, who saw the writer in her and selected her and her best friend to write, cast, direct and film their own historical plays. She can still remember how proud she was for being a playwright! Jeanne’s teacher ignited a passion in her for stringing words together, and it’s never left!
