A note from Susan Van Zant

Since my retirement as a successful elementary and middle school pricipal I have been working with over 500,000 educators in more than 100 school districts all across the United States. I not only motivate, inspire, and support teachers and administrators, I also share practical, proven strategies they can take away and use effectively in their classrooms– immediately! I help them feel self-value and to feel proud of the profession they have chosen because they definitely will make a difference in the lives of students. As a successful consultant, coach, and national trainer I promise to teach, motivate and inspire educators. Please contact me today to find out more.
