FORT WORTH, Texas (July 24, 2009)–The Amon Carter Museum is pleased to announce that Sara Klein has joined its staff as the Teacher and School Programs Manager.
Klein is responsible for developing and implementing a broad range of programs designed to assist educators and students of all grade levels and disciplines to explore and understand the Carter’s collections and special exhibitions.
“Sara’s experience designing school tour programs and educator trainings will bring fresh insights to the Carter’s well-established, successful programs, elevating them to a higher level and allowing us to better serve the tens of thousands of teachers and students we reach each year,” says Stacy Fuller, the museum’s head of education.
Previous to the Carter, Klein was the education curator for tours and school programs at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Okla.
