Susan graduated with a degree in Ecology and Systematics from San Francisco State in 1981 and pursued graduate work in limnology at Uppsala University, Sweden. This was interrupted when she accidentally fell into teaching and joyfully stayed, working in private and public high schools in Northern California and Utah. She completed her Master’s degree in Science Education from Montana State University where her studies focused on the role of student affect in science course success. She is currently the science department chair at Alma Heights Christian School where she teaches a wide variety of science courses, including AP* Environmental Science.
Susan spends her summers exploring the wide variety of workshops and opportunities available to science teachers. In recent years, this included the American Chemical Society’s program on green chemistry, and participating in the Earthwatch Institute’s teacher-in the-field program. Susan has been an AP* Environmental Science exam reader and table leader for the past 18 years, and a College Board consultant for 13 years.
