In her imagination Sarah Todd owns a small sandwich shop with a large garden in which she can dig in the dirt all year long. In reality she teaches community practice in the school of social work at Carleton University. Before becoming an academic she worked in a variety of community based agencies in Southern Ontario and continues to be involved in the Ottawa community.

She loves working with students and the challenge of bringing community work to life in the classroom. Sarah works from a feminist perspective, while exploring what post-structuralism can contribute to efforts for social change. She has had the privilege of working with community activists in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua and is continually intrigued to realize how much there still is for her to learn about communities and social change.

Right now she is planning a leave from teaching as she is expecting her first child who she hopes will love digging around in the garden as much as she and her dogs do
