Shari Saunders

Hello fellow travelers! I hope you are as excited as I am for our Tanzanian adventure! My name is Shari Saunders, and I am a clinical professor and associate dean in the School of Education (SOE). I earned my PhD in education from the University of Virginia, my master’s degree in learning disabilities from Northwestern University, and my bachelor’s degree in special education from Syracuse University. My areas of interests are in teacher education, transformative education toward social justice, social-emotional learning, restorative justice, and trauma-informed practice.
I am a native New Yorker who moved to Michigan almost 30 years ago to join the faculty in the SOE. My family is spread across the east coast, and I enjoy travel opportunities that involve visits with my eight grand-niblings (nieces and nephews). As a life-long learner, I love to take classes and develop new knowledge and skills. I have taken many types of classes: quilting, jewelry-making, ballroom dancing, cooking, etc. I have been trained as a health coach, Reiki practitioner, and raw foods chef among other things. I enjoy various forms of fitness such as Pilates, Tai Chi, and restorative yoga. My main interest in this trip is the opportunity for individual and collective explorations of the multiple stories of Tanzania based on our various adventures—stories of culture, wildlife, land, and food. I am hopeful that we will have experiences that challenge our entering assumptions and walk away with a more complex and nuanced understanding of Tanzania and its richness.
I am looking forward to traveling and learning with all of you. Go Blue!
