Sara Furlich, Owner
Sara Furlich is an educational consultant and certified special education teacher. She served as a faculty member and Dean of Instruction at West Dallas Community School for eleven years. West Dallas is a College Preparatory Classical Christian School for low-income students. In addition to leading West Dallas as a fledgling school, she has consulted for new schools in Wichita Falls, TX; Atlanta, GA; Tulsa, OK, Wheaton, IL, and served as the first Head of School for the Wilberforce School in Princeton, NJ.
Sara’s knowledge of sound curriculum and pedagogy led to a position with Saxon Publishers in developing a new line of language arts programs. At Saxon, her leadership brought clear educational direction to the curriculum development team. The programs flourished under her leadership as she worked with a network of authors and consultants from across the country.
Sara has a degree from Baylor University in Elementary Education and is certified in both K-8 Instruction and K-12 Special Education. She has her Masters in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary. Her academic track emphasized systematic and practical theology. She is a member and teacher at Fellowship Bible church, Dallas, TX.
As a special educator, Sara is passionate about advocacy for struggling students and families trying to navigate the vast educational choices in Dallas. Sara is gifted in helping parents sort through the complicated process of diagnosis and developing an intervention team of specialists. Sara is able to help parents better understand the legal requirements of IDEA and 504 and how they impact students. Sara’s experience with thousands of students both as an academic interventionist and in a consultant role includes the following: ADHD, ADD, Dyslexia, Reading Disabilities of all kinds, Dyscalculia, Asperger’s, PDD, SLD, conduct disorder, and oppositional defiant disorder.
Sara is passionate about classical education and longs to see this vision for education permeate both private and public education in America. Sara’s educational philosophy can best be described as a Charlotte Mason classical education. Charlotte Mason was an educational reformer in England in the early 20th century. Sara believes the principles of a Charlotte Mason education are best realized in the context of a classical education.
