Susanna is thrilled to join the WeLearn team as the Primary PBL Coach and SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) specialist. Susanna has been working with children her entire adult life in international communities, whether teaching in the school setting or private mentoring in the home setting. Her greatest passion is developing every aspect of the child — emotional, physical and mental wellbeing — to guide them to be the best version of themselves.
Susanna graduated with honors and research distinction and holds two degrees from The Ohio State University: Early Childhood Education and Developmental Psychology. Her recently published research is based on mother-child interactions during book reading and children’s subsequent literacy skills.
Recently, Susanna founded “EQ for kidz”, a program designed to cultivate emotional and social intelligence skills in the early years. Through mindfulness activities and interactive games, EQ for kidz teaches children how to recognize, understand, label, express and regulate (R.U.L.E.R.) their emotions while parents are given tools to become lifelong emotion coaches.
