She knows K-5 teaching and learning like the back of her hand, and is universally welcome into classrooms across the district by her colleagues for demo lessons or friendly pointers. As one colleague put it, it’s time we reap the investment we have made in Sue over the years, and that is spot on. She’s ready to take the next step, and I am confident you will see what all of us see and be more than pleased when she takes the helm at Lower Gwynedd.
