P.E. Teacher Sue Zeanah
- Freshman P.E., P.E. 3 elective “Personal Fitness,” and freshman seminar teacher.
- 18 years of teaching: 15 years teaching middle and high school in Ohio, varsity girl’s basketball coach, 2 years at Mountainview Elementary School.
- “This is what I was born to do. I like the challenge of helping people who are trying to figure out their young adult lives and how that fits with what they’re trying to get in their future. I truly feel like this is my fit. I love kids from every walks of [life]. I just like being able to be a solid rock for kids… just being someone for them to rely on and be there when they need it.”
- “Wednesday! Wednesday’s Hump Day — my students already know the Geico commercial of the camel asking what day of the week it is. I think it’s important to remember that in a five-day week… Wednesday’s the top of the mountain, or the hump. Once you get over that, you feel closer to the weekend, and for a lot of people, that positive mindset of ‘I’m that much closer’ is a helpful thing. I wear my Hump Day socks on Wednesdays and I like to tell people it’s Hump Day. And that is something that a lot of people will remember about me.”
- “I went to the 5th-smallest public high school in Ohio — I graduated with 27 people. And then I went to the Ohio State University, which, at the time, was the second-largest in the country. I tell my students all the time: the reason I went to such a big school was to get to be around people that were different from me. I didn’t want to be in my bubble anymore. And that’s where I’m at as a teacher, too. I want to teach people who come from different walks of life, who are all trying to navigate society as we know it. I’ve been through lots of different scenarios, and what we have going on here at Albemarle High School is amazing as far as the diversity and equity within that, and helping everybody learn from each other.”
