Sarah Besnoff '01 was our November Monthly Constitutional speaker in the 8th grade. Sarah, who graduated from Barnard College and then earned a joint law degree and master's in public policy from the University of Pennsylvania, is currently clerking for Federal Judge C. Darnell Jones.
Sarah's presentation on the differences between state and federal courts was the perfect introduction to the 8th grade's study of the judiciary, which will begin later this week.
Though we enjoy every single one of our Monthly Constitutional speakers, it is especially gratifying to have "one of our own" come back as an expert. Having Sarah back in the TPS Middle School – working with her former teacher Emily Marston – was just delightful.
