Sarah Dove was hired as Ohio’s Teacher Liaison in spring 2011.
Dove’s job is to reach out to educators across the state to get their input on changes such as a new evaluation system and performance pay, and to communicate teachers’ concerns back to policy-makers in Columbus.
Before moving into her current position, Dove spent five years as a fourth and fifth-grade teacher in the Gahanna-Jefferson school district in suburban Columbus. Prior to that, she worked as a production assistant on Kasich’s Fox News television show.
Dove has been sharply critical of the Ohio Education Association and a public supporter of Senate Bill 5, which would sharply limit collective bargaining for public employees, including teachers.
