Susan Svendsen

My name is Susan Svendsen. I was born in Tennessee and raised mostly in Indiana/Madison Alabama. I moved from Indiana to Alabama when I was in elementary school. I have lived in the Huntsville/Madison area for over 20 years. I have an older sister, a niece, and one child. I live in Athens with my daughter, Sydney, who keeps me running. We are both starting new adventures this year. I’m so excited to be able to teach at Goldsmith Schiffman.

I graduated from Athens State University with a BS in Elementary Education in 2008. Since that time I have taught in other school districts and grades. I have taught all grades up to sixth grade and enjoy working at Goldsmith. I have always wanted to be a teacher and am so excited to have my dreams come true!!
