She demonstrates an unwavering commitment to incorporating active student learning and real-world activities in all of her classes; they are learning first hand what it is like to work in the real world.

Suzanne Tucker takes a very strong interest in her students' successes and strives to make the learning experience relevant. Her practical work experience, combined with her education, enables her to bring the practical perspective to the classroom.
