Ms. Susan Volz
I have been teaching at the high school level in private and public school settings since 1981. Throughout my career, I have been dedicated to the belief that every child deserves the opportunity to explore the knowledge, beauty and wonder that engagement in academic content and involvement in the arts and athletics can afford them. As a student myself in Wauwatosa in the 1960's and 1970s, I benefitted from so many teachers and experiences that have enriched my life. Literature, music, art, science...I vividly remember how these opportunities helped build my awareness of who I am and my connectedness to the world. I realize that for every child in our schools, we owe them the best that we can give them during the brief, important years in which they are students.
I have lived in the Milwaukee area most of my life, with brief years in the Cleveland and El Paso areas providing me with some wonderful friends and memeories. I am the aunt to wonderful nieces and nephews- now adults themselves, and grand nieces and nephews- who keep me current and committed to contributing to building a better world.
I enjoy reading, New York times crossword puzzles, bicycling, watching PBS, time with family and friends, and, true to my belief in life-long learning- have recently started guitar lessons.
