Suzanne Wolf – Director of Project PEACE Foundation, Specialist in Classroom Management, Differentiation, Special Needs, Safety and School Preparedness National Trainer for Time to Teach in Classroom Management, “The Educator’s Educator” and Co-Author of Room 23 and the Lock-Down Drill.
Suzanne Wolf has been passionate about providing underprivileged communities with resources and opportunities to improve the quality of their lives. She also has enjoyed bridging the gap of communication between Spanish speaking families and their interactions at school and in the community as well. Suzanne recently had an epiphany after becoming an Associate Trainer for Time to Teach, that there were many highly regarded colleagues with a similar passion to improve the state of our educational system around the nation (and ultimately throughout the world). The concept of “several pieces of a puzzle being necessary to improve the educational picture as a whole”, inspired Suzanne to create the idea of a heart shaped puzzle as the logo for Project PEACE Suzanne is now eager to promote.
