It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of Mrs. Esther Sarver, former Deputy Director and High School principal at UCA. Mrs. Sarver was a teacher and Instructional Coach for 20 years in Dallas, TX before joining Esol in 2015 to serve as the Assistant Director of Universal College in Aley. Mrs. Sarver served the UCA Learning Community faithfully until the end of the 2018-2019 school year when her illness forced her to return to the U.S. Mrs. Sarver was a passionate educator who was tirelessly committed to the success of each individual student and the growth and development of our teachers. Her contributions to UCA and the UCA learning community were significant and their impact will be felt for years to come.
“Esther Sarver was the consummate educator, student advocate and capacity builder for teachers. Her addition to the UCA team in 2015 set the stage for the significant progress we have made as a school in cooperative learning, authentic assessment and teacher professional development. Her impact on UCA is only rivaled by the loss we feel of her absence.”
