Susan’s desire to become a school board director for SDHT comes from over 35 years of public school experience along with raising 4 children. She actually moved to our Township 30 years ago so she could send her 2 younger children to Haverford schools!
Susan’s public school experience includes 20 years as a teacher, 4 years as Special Education Supervisor, and 12 years as principal of Lynnewood Elementary School. During that time Susan has been honored with the Dominic Recchuti School Board Volunteer Award as well as the Delaware County Right To Education Task Force Making A Difference Award for lifetime achievement given to Special Education students, teachers, and programs 2013-14.
Her volunteer work includes 10 years at the Haverford Township Education Foundation where she worked with teachers and board members to award significant Ed Foundation classroom grants to directly benefit our students at all levels.
At Lynnewood, she started the Martin Luther King volunteer service day, which continues to be a popular event. She brought Pennies For Patients and weekly lunches made and delivered to the Upper Darby Life Center among many other community action projects for the entire school community.
Susan’s deep and diverse experience as an educator gives her a unique ability to serve Haverford Township as a school board member. With her expertise in the classroom and in administration, her goal is to bring more community members into the conversation about school programs and policies, making sure everyone knows they have a seat at the table. She will use her knowledge and communication skills to add her voice as a visible and vocal advocate for all students and as a proud proponent for the School District of Haverford Township.
Currently retired, Susan volunteers one day a week at the school district and is now director of the Grants Committee of the Haverford Township School District Educational Foundation. She lives in Havertown with her husband and enjoys gardening and travel.
