This is Suzanne's second year teaching at UHS after many years of working for and volunteering with nonprofit organizations. She has a BA in Latin American history from Wesleyan University and a MA in history from the University of Texas at Austin.  She worked as a young adult librarian for the city of Baltimore, a paralegal and lobbyist for the ACLU of Maryland, and has volunteered with a number of nonprofits. She teaches -- she started learning in 7th grade and never stopped! -- and emphasizes conversation as well as grammar. She also teaches the history of social movements for 12+, Math Circle for elementary learners, Children of the World, Project: Project! (a project management class) for HS, Anime & Manga, and a class to introduce high schoolers and adults to the world of social justice nonprofits. She's a firm believer in reading for pleasure, sticking with things even when they're hard, and participating in class. 

Suzanne is relatively new to homeschooling (her son went to traditional public schools), but appreciates how this model makes it easier to adapt to students' learning styles.
