AMDA Faculty since: 2018

Sara Amato is an aspiring novelist and educator. Sara's scholarly interests focus on the evolution of the female anti-hero archetype: the appeal of characters who are neither completely good nor evil but instead characters influenced by specific moral codes and circumstances. Sara strives to teach her students the fundamental elements of writing and analysis. Throughout her courses, she includes relevant cultural references alongside classic literature to encourage students to contemplate societal expectations and changes from past to present. Sara asks students to approach literature and writing - like they would the script or lyric - in order to prepare for their future professional endeavors.

Sara teaches English Composition.
