I am Sarah Chan! A piano teacher, social advocate, and mother of two.
I am proud to live local in Edmonton, on Treaty 6 land.
Who is Miss Sarah?
A long time ago I was the newest "Miss Chan" to start teaching at a music school, so my students started calling me "Miss Sarah" instead. I was born at the Edmonton General Hospital and raised in Edmonton's west end. I have a MA in Cultural Studies and, a BA with a major in English Literature and minor in Music. These days I split my time running my piano teaching studio; raising my two kids; and, engaging heavily in community building as a social advocate alongside my husband, Mayor Don Iveson.
What Does She Do?
I am proud to have developed my professions as a musician, teacher, and small business owner here in Edmonton. Additionally, my passion is connecting with youth to talk about our generational challenges. My social advocacy focuses on education, youth in leadership, and empowering women & girls.
I am a guest speaker at schools and student gatherings; am available as a keynote speaker; and always welcome opportunities to participate in and learn about transformational community work.
