Ms. Adelson

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Sari Adelson

Hello!  I'm Ms. Sari Adelson, science teacher in the middle school at the Clara B. Ford Academy.  I joined the faculty at CBF in October of 2018 as the school's Art Teacher and transitioned to the Middle School in January 2019. I attended the University of Michigan- Ann Arbor, graduating in December 2007 with a double bachelors in Psychology and Art. Truth be told, however, my love of science started at a very early age, and I'm thrilled to be sharing that love with the girls in the Middle School at CBF.

Previous to coming to CBF, I was the administrator for an organization at the University of Michigan called the Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP).  Through my work at PCAP, i spent 10 years teaching visual art to incarcerated men, women, and children across the state of Michigan.
