In her position as Elementary Principal for Florida Virtual Schools (FLVS), Sarah generated a new enthusiasm for the potential of online learning. Her assignment included launching FLVS ’ elementary education program. To perform that job, she brought insights gained as both a classroom teacher and a program manager. Prior to joining FLVS, Sarah provided oversight of early childhood programs for Orange County Public Schools for 23 years. She is equally proud of the 10 years she spent teaching at the kindergarten level.
Sarah Sprinkel is constantly motivated by a desire to educate people. That’s the primary reason for her book Mimi and Me. Her commitment to students and her profession allows her to adjunct teach at University of Central Florida (UCF) and Valencia College. She has always been dedicated to excellence. She earned her Master of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from Rollins College in Winter Park. Her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education was awarded by Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn.
Consultant, Author, Speaker
There is an air of excitement that surrounds Sarah Sprinkel and everything she does. Perhaps it is because of her belief that educating children should be exciting. Perhaps it is because of the tangible results her extensive knowledge of early childhood education has produced for many thousands of students.
Additional previous assignments include, creating childhood development centers for Walt Disney World®, creating family outreach programs for the Orlando Museum of Art, serving as a vice president for the YMCA, and providing private consultation services for social service agencies. She also lobbied with the Florida State Legislature on behalf of the needs of students.
Always a dedicated volunteer in her community, Sarah has served three terms as a city commissioner and has served on numerous boards, professional associations and committees over the years. She and her husband, George, have three children: Clark, Caroline and George, who have blessed them with five grandchildren: Sophie, Anna, Gabriel, George VI, and Grace. Her free time is spent enjoying the golf course and tending to her gardens.
Would love to connect over any or all of these areas.
