Once a certified teacher, she taught the “Mommy and Me” and the “All By Myself” classes, before becoming Group Teacher for Pre-K3.
Suzanne is passionate about teaching at COS! The staff works together to ensure that children learn to “Make Love Grow” by meeting new friends, sharing, caring for toys and creating projects. Children sit together at circle time, learn routines and rules, explore their environment, practice small and large motor skills, sing, dance, attend a monthly chapel and experience the wonder of learning.
Suzanne believes in a positive approach to encourage early learning and language development by meeting the individual needs to each child. “I find it rewarding to watch a class grow in interaction, imagination and creativity.” In her personal life, Suzanne is happily married and has two sons ages 19 and 17.
