Sue is a respected literacy educator with over two decades of
teaching practice in the upper elementary grades. Her teaching
career includes experience as a classroom teacher, as well as a
reading specialist, in Georgia, Illinois, and Tennessee.
Sue seeks opportunities for professional development that strengthen
her abilities in the classroom and range from literacy strategies and
instruction to environmental science work on the coast. “Literacy is
embedded in everything we do in our daily lives, and it is important to
me that students see the connection between what we are learning in
reading and writing, and what they are studying in history or science.
As fifth-grade teachers, we collaborate together to ensure that we
make the links across the curriculum everywhere we can in order to
strengthen students’ understanding and knowledge of each subject.”
A current Girls on the Run coach at St. Peter’s, Sue enjoys the
outdoors and traveling to places where she can sit back with a good
book and enjoy the scenery. She and her husband, Ben, are parents
of two daughters, one of whom graduated from St. Peter’s.
