Meet Susan Saule

Appalachian Director of Programs & Community Outreach, North Carolina |

Susan Saule joined YES in summer 2017. She grew up just outside Washington DC and finished at Mary Washington College with a BS in Psychology and a BA in English. The experiences of teaching in Japan, finishing graduate school and working with a church’s youth ministry shaped Susan’s passion for teaching and learning from middle schoolers.

She taught at a public middle school teaching English and math to English Language Learners in Arlington, VA before moving to Pennsylvania for the opportunity to work with adolescents and young adults navigating the transition from pediatric to adult health care at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Susan is excited for the opportunity to be based in Boone, NC to cultivate curiosity and discovery within students.
