"Teaching for me," Susan says, "is a complex of motivations.Students have a choice as to where they can direct their energies, and if students opt for creative direction, it's almost guaranteed that their lives will be enriched, purposeful, constructive, and a source of pride.There are techniques specific to poetry to be learned in order to find one's voice and make that voice stronger.Seeing students opening up to their own creativity via the written word, and the results which ensue, both on a literary and personal level, is what keeps me engaged, enthusiastic, and excited about teaching."
Susan has given many reading in and around the New York City area and New England, including being a featured reader at the first Woodstock Poetry Festival in August 2001.She was a founding member of The All Right!
