Originally from Boston, Susan Kickbush moved here, to Port Charlotte over 25 years ago. She never tires of the palm trees and the tropical climate. Middle school is not new to Susan, since she's taught Language Arts, Technology, and Drama, to this age group, for over a decade.
About 4 years ago, an opportunity opened up for a new adventure. After a series of interviews, Susan was selected as Port Charlotte Middle School's first Instructional coach. So, she moved out of the classroom to her new position as a "Teacher on Assignment". Prior to her 14 years in public education, Susan was the founder, owner, and director of four performing arts schools. Two of those schools are still in operation; one is in Franklin, Massachusetts. The other school, Florida Dance Workshop, she opened here, in Port Charlotte back in 1991.
Susan brings experience from an eclectic list of other professional positions, as well. Every day is an adventure, as she works closely with her colleagues to discover and pass on the very latest in effective teaching strategies. You can learn more about her current occupation on the page entited, "What is an Instructional Coach?"
