Susan Gerstner

Primary 2/3 Teacher

I have a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy from Concordia University, St. Paul. I completed my bachelor degree in History and Elementary Education from the University of Colorado, Boulder.

I’ve spent the last five years teaching 2nd grade in a public school in Minneapolis. After moving to Louisville at the beginning of 2019, I found Virginia Chance School in my quest for best schools for my daughter. From the moment I discovered this school, I was in love. Progressive Education is the type of education that is sought after by most educators and what I want for my own child. It is a way to cultivate the whole child—their creativity, problem-solving skills, empathy, and their ability to cooperate and communicate with others as rising global citizens. 

When I’m not at school, I spend my time with my husband, my 18-month-old daughter and our two (very large) Golden-doodles, Bernie and Ziggy. We continue to explore all that Louisville has to offer!
