About Susan


Bio

My name is Susan and I am a mother of a 21 year-old athletically talented son who will be on the college Basketballteam again for his sophomore year at a community college. During his elementary school years, I have volunteered with reading to the children who required more attention and praise for their achievements. I also worked with the SMART program here in Northeast Portland. I receive so much energy from these innocent and eager children. Their enthusiasm is contagious.

My name is Susan and I am a mother of a 21 year-old athletically talented son who will be on the college Basketballteam again for his sophomore year at a community college. During his elementary school years, I have volunteered with reading to the children who required more attention and praise for their achievements. I also worked with the SMART program here in Northeast Portland. I receive so much energy from these innocent and eager children. Their enthusiasm is contagious.

I worked as a Registered Nurse in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Legacy Emanuel hospital for 9.5 years when I decided to teach nursing students the never-ending rewards of compassion. I taught the skill of listening to what was behind the spoken words. Patient care is teaching. The patients must understand all the reasons for treatments, medications and lifestyle habits. I worked three summers for camps that included teenagers from both middle schools and high schools. I was the Camp Nurse, but also engaged in all the activities they learned in the outdoors. I secretly desired to be a kid again. I now want to enlighten this new generation for preservation of the earth and each other.

I attended Catholic school for 12 years. In grades first through eighth, the teachers organized spelling "bees". I often was the last one standing. I contribute this success to both my father and the school system. I often used the dictionary when I didn't know the meaning of a word whenever I was reading a fiction or non-fiction book. I worked on crossword puzzles in the newspaper.

English

I attended a Catholic school for 12 years. English was emphasized as significant for success in obtaining employment or continuing forward in further education. In grade 4, we were given 20 new words/week. We were instructed to write two sentences for each new word. Each sentence needed to be written in a different format. I taught different subjects in the field of nursing at the college level using a variety of methods (PowerPoint presentation, small group discussions, scenarios).
