Suzanne Pepping started her Catholic teaching career in first grade at St. Edward school in Indiana. After staying home to raise her two children, she taught kindergarten at St. Mary School in Park Forest, Illinois and preschool at St. John the Baptist in Winfield, Illinois. With a desire to learn more current teaching strategies, Mrs. Pepping went onto graduate school to receive additional teaching endorsements in early childhood education, special education, and English as a second language. After having taught in Catholic schools for 25 years, she wanted to work as an English as a second language teacher. Using her new teaching credentials, she was offered a position in the Illinois public schools as an English as a second language specialist in grades preschool through grade 5. Mrs. Pepping moved to Florida in the summer of 2016 and began substitute teaching at St. Paul hoping to return full time to the Catholic schools that she loved. She was very grateful to have been offered a second grade teaching position in November of 2016.
