Mrs. Susan James
Hello, welcome to my homepage. I am Mrs. James and I am extremely passionate about three things; children, learning, and teaching. My favorite thing about teaching is learning with the young people who share my day. I am especially thankful to be the TAG Social Studies teacher here at L.A. Ainger Middle School. It is a dream come true! I get my children as incoming 6th graders and keep them throughout middle school, so the bond and mutual respect we share is deep and true. I have been with the TAG program at Ainger since 2003 and I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!
I was raised in Charlotte County and have lived here since I was two. I graduated from Charlotte High. I earned a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree from Florida Southern College, a Master of Arts degree in Gifted Education from the University of South Florida, and an Education Specialist (Ed.S) degree from Arkansas State University. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher in the discipline of Social Studies. I am a life long learner and I am always looking for the next challenge.
Both of my sons and their families live in Charlotte County so my two darling grandchildren are close by. I count myself to be a very fortunate person and I am so glad that you have visited my page.
