Ms. Susan | The Way You Handle It

Episode 11  / What’s Happening Here

After studying psychology, Susan moved to New York to find a job in what she called “a young person’s field” and as a result, landed a successful career in advertising. Years later, taking the expertise she gained in production into the classroom, Susan began working with high school students on their communication skills. Each year, she and Ms. Cinzia produce the annual speech day at Manhattan International High School. This final episode of Season One explores why Ms. Susan believes listening to students and allowing them to share their personal stories is important.
