Susan Stott Headshot

Susan is a teacher by trade with a Master’s in Elementary Education. She has worked in a variety of school settings over the years including Northwestern University’s enrichment program, and most recently as a preschool teacher at Westminster Preschool. She and her husband, Aaron and their three children are super-users of the library and have been residents of Glen Ellyn for eight years.

Statement: Prioritizing the accessibility for students in need of access to safe and reliable internet connections for remote learning can be safely implemented in small socially distanced groups within the library. Utilizing a model of sign up times, enforced mask wearing and physical distancing, we can afford this essential opportunity to our youngest community members.
