MS, Literacy Education, Northern Illinois University

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.
