Susan Lake Goal Poster

Susan Lake, as she tells anyone who asks, has been teaching forever. Forever began in 1969 at Shawnee Mission, Kansas. Since that time, she has taught junior high, high school, and college students as well as adults. Subjects include English, history, journalism, G.E.D. classes, and computer education.

She has been writing even longer than she has been teaching, crafting her first short story while in high school. Some of her suggestions have been published in Notes Plus and Ideas Plus, publications of the National Council of Teachers of English.

Planning curriculum that is interesting to her as much as her students is one of her joys. However, she admits, 'Sitting at home in my ivory tower, everything seems possible. Facing class on Monday morning is always the real test. My best plans disintegrate too often. For me, trying to bring the ivory tower to the actual classroom is a constant challenge."
