Ms. Flaherty, Susan

This is my 11th year at WMS. I teach students in the English Learners program. I truly love what I do, as it's a win/win: we learn from each other! I enjoy learning about my students' cultures, families, and backgrounds. I believe our students in the English Learners program are such an asset for the classrooms and the teachers. I have such empathy for my kiddos; my job is to make sure they are learning to become English proficient and utilizing their best abilities to be the best they can be!  

I have two adult children. My son, Peter, is engaged to be married in June 2024. He works in finance and his fiance Sarah is a teacher! My daughter, Madeline, is a Certified Public Accountant in NYC and loves city life! I was born and raised in Connecticut. I live in Kirkwood and am enjoying the new craze: pickleball!
