Hello! My name is Susan Bristel and I am delighted to serve as the Reading Specialist for Muhlenberg High School. After living most of my life in New York, I moved to Pennsylvania in 2007 and began teaching at Muhlenberg in 2010.
In 1986, I graduated from SUNY Geneseo with a Bachelor of Science Degree In Elementary Education. I went on to obtain a Master's Degree in Literacy at Dowling College and even had the opportunity to teach there as an adjunct professor.
One of my goals is to help as many students as I can develop a love for reading. I want them to realize that books inspire us, touch us emotionally, and challenge us. When students come in to my room looking for a book to read for enjoyment, I say to myself, "today is a good day!"
