SUSAN ROTH

Susan started working at MECR in 1996 when her daughter was born.  In those early years, visitors to the MECR office might find a baby asleep under her desk as she worked.  As her family grew, so did her job at MECR as she evolved from the MECR Assistant to the MECR Financial Director.  Susan often says that working with Montessorians for her entire career has been a beautiful blessing, as Montessorians tend to walk a path of kindness and perspective and purpose.   While Susan has never taken training (she’s been a bit busy every summer for the last 23 years!), all 5 of her children have attended Montessori schools.  She fully enjoys the connections she has made with the many students and instructors who have passed through MECR and loves to imagine the light they have passed on to the world  in service to the child.

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Bhudda –

Susan took this photo of the hands of her two sons on MLK day in 2014.
