  • Susan Mitchell, Teacher

    Susan Mitchell

    Teacher

    When I was little and someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was always, “a teacher.” As I grew older, that response never wavered. As a student who had to work hard to do well, I knew the importance of having teachers who believed in me and they taught me to believe in myself! At Sylvan, I have the opportunity to do that every day – inspire students to say, “I can” and provide them with the skills to not give up and to figure things out. It is so gratifying to be able to empower these young minds, so that they are able to work with increased confidence and independence. All Good Things Take Time and with time, these students become true Success Stories!
