Prior to becoming an Orton-Gillingham tutor, Susan worked as a kindergarten teacher and handwork assistant at the Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School for six years. In the summer of 2015, she tutored at Camp Dunnabeck and was hooked by the dedication of its faculty and staff to their students, and by the students themselves. She is currently working toward her Certified Level in OG. She lives in Claverack, NY with her husband and son. They live on an organic farm in an energy efficient house with their two dogs, two cats, two guinea pigs and a flock of chickens. She enjoys gardening, knitting, puppetry, cooking with fresh produce and baking yummy sweets.
