Suzanne has taught for 30 years, both in the states and in Central America. She is National Board Certified with a Masters in Education, plus 30 hours. She has taught 4th and 5th grade regular education and gifted education, 7th and 8th grade math, and even 10th grade literature.
Suzanne believes that education should be fun and engaging, so her classroom has always been full of unique learning ideas and experiences for her students. "Controlled chaos" might be a good term to apply here! Students may be filming an op ed for a video, creating period newspapers for a novel being read, or acting out the story of a biographical character's life!
