Sarah Pollman teaches art history, visual theory and photographic imaging and production. Her curriculums place emphasis on visual language and literacy by connecting contemporary imaging culture with its historical counterparts. Pollman's teaching strategies combine traditional instruction with alternative learning approaches to reach as many learners as possible.

Currently, she is faculty at Tufts University, Emerson College, Montserrat College of Art and the New Hampshire Institute of Art.
