Susanne has over 25 years of experience working with preschool-aged children in the Seattle area. She values working collaboratively and building strong relationships with teachers, children, and families. She strives to create an environment that encourages innovation, creativity, and inclusivity and sees the Pre-K classroom at U Coop as a warm and loving space where children are encouraged to share ideas, take risks, and learn from one another.
“I am inspired by the abundant wonder and excitement that children have as they explore the world around them. What I see at University Cooperative School is a community of educators passionate about nurturing that wonder and excitement in every child. I feel lucky to be part of such an amazing school!”
Susanne lives in the Fremont neighborhood with her husband of 21 years, their two high school-aged kids, and 2 cats. In her spare time, Susanne enjoys gardening, cooking, baking, trying new restaurants, and traveling. One of her favorite weekend activities is waking up early and enjoying a cup of coffee on her front patio, listening to nature’s early morning sounds.
