Welcome parents and students to third grade! My name is Suzanne Schaefer. I have worked as a Chicago Public School teacher for twenty-one years. For the past tweleve years I have taught at Peirce School, primarily in grades 3rd - 5th. My educational credentials include a Bachelor of Arts from Michigan State University in French and International Relations, a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Northeastern Illinois University, and a Master's Degree in Science Education from DePaul University. I have been a National Board Certified teacher for the past eleven years. My diverse educational background has instilled in me the love of learning that I hope to impart to my students over the course of the school year.
