My Bio

Greetings!  My name is Susannah and I am honored to be working with your children at San Tan Charter School!  I was born and raised in northern California near San Francisco.  I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Arizona State University, and my Master’s is in Early Childhood Education.  My professional background includes working in the Montessori preschool and prior to that I was a licensed equity broker for 15 years at a large financial services firm.

My educational philosophy has evolved from both professional and personal experiences.  All children have the right to a superior education that serves their individual needs and promotes individual success and self-confidence.  My goal with your children is to provide them with a warm, secure, and inviting learning environment where they can discover, grow, explore, learn, take risks, and build positive relationships with peers and adults.  It is important parents and teachers work together and collaborate to pursue academic and social achievement, while building character.  I encourage and maintain regular interaction with families to support our goals.   

In my spare time, I am busy raising three kiddos of my own, ages 8, 5, and 3!  I love to watch the Golden State Warriors & ASU football.  I also serve as a board member on a non-profit called Literacy First Foundation dedicated to helping individuals who struggle with dyslexia.  As a parent of a child with dyslexia, I am passionate about helping children with learning differences and creating a learning environment where all learners can succeed.  I am looking forward to a wonderful year at San Tan!
