Whether it's developing a literacy night for K-2, hosting readers' theatre productions in her classroom or sharing her passion for gardening, Susan Hirsch puts every ounce of herself into the education of our children. Mrs. Hirsch, a National Board Certified teacher, most frequently has been seen working tirelessly on the Edison Garden, moving soil, rocks, weeding and occasionally taking a break to watch in wonder at a butterfly. Another passion, reading, has led her to leadership positions in the Niagara Frontier Reading Council, on the front-lines of creating professional development and conferences for literacy teachers. As a grade 1 teacher, she excels in working with students in "the magic years", where simple letter and work knowledge are transformed into reading. Susan you are a SOARING eagle in every respect.
