Chief Academic Officer, Literacy Design Collaborative
Suzanne is a longtime “book whisperer” and teacher and student advocate. She has taught literature, literacy, systems redesign, and leadership in a range of educational settings, including Head Start, ESL, ABE, elementary and high school, and the university level. Suzanne holds a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Pennsylvania. She sits on the Pepper Council and the Board of Trustees of the Free Library of Philadelphia, and on the Board of the Benjamin and Fredora K. Wolf Memorial Foundation. In her spare time, Suzanne reads avidly, travels the world, practices yoga, and sometimes teaches Pilates. She is also a writer and a big fan of the Transition to Writing step, knowing full well how messy writing really is. Suzanne believes that the LDC community is building a movement that will change the world—one module at a time!
