Hello! My name is Suzan Hensel and I am a 3rd grade ELA teacher at East Union Intermediate Center. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English and Elementary Education degree from Chatham College and received my Master of Education degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. I have been teaching at Deer Lakes since August 1999. Prior to teaching at Deer Lakes, my professional experiences include substitute teaching in Allegheny Valley, Deer Lakes, Fox Chapel Area and Hampton School Districts
As your child progresses through this school year, keep in mind that third grade is such a big transition year for him/her. Your child may take some time to adjust to a new building, new teachers, new content, and new expectations. My goal is to ease this transition, and my hope is to instill a lifelong love of reading in my students. As an educator, it is so exciting to see that little spark ignite as we progress through the year together.
My husband and I reside in Frazer Township. We are avid fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, and the West Virginia Mountaineers. We love to travel, and one of our favorite places to visit is Siesta Key, Florida.
