Susan Wendel

Two Year Old Assistant

I have loved the Good Sam Day School community so much as a parent, that I joined the staff as an Assistant Teacher. It’s a privilege to be a part of your child’s preschool journey!

I received my B.S. in Elementary Education from Penn State, and my M.Ed. in Reading Education from the University of Virginia with a Reading Specialist certification. I taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Reading Intervention for 11 years before staying home with my daughter and son.

Nothing compares to the joy, imagination, and energy of preschoolers. I believe in learning through play and building from each child’s strengths. Compassion, kindness, and inclusion are at the heart of my work each day.

I live in Paoli with my husband and children. Outside of teaching, I love running, weight lifting, and cheering on the Nittany Lions.
