Welcome to 2nd Grade!
My name is Suzanne (Suzy) Malarcher and I can’t wait to begin my first year at Discovery Elementary! While I’m a brand-new Trailblazer, this will be my 6th year in the classroom and my 15th in the field of education. I have taught preschool through 2nd grade and 2nd grade is certainly my favorite!
I received both my Bachelor’s and Master of Education in Early Childhood and Childhood Education from the State University of New York at Buffalo. I’m originally from a rural town just south of Syracuse and stayed in the area until a job at the National Association for the Education of Young Children led me to DC.
I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful children; Julia, Jack, and William. We also have a cockapoo named Lana. We spent the last three years in Shreveport, LA and are very happy to be back in Northern Virginia!
Outside of the classroom, I love to read, crochet, and do anything that allows me to be creative. I also write for a local online publication and enjoy being able to explore the area with my children (we love tracking down our favorite food trucks and going to the Farmer’s Market!)
I am constantly learning and growing as a teacher and am extremely lucky to be a part of the Discovery Elementary team. I’m looking forward to creating a welcoming and safe environment, while developing the partnerships necessary to our students’ learning and success. Let’s make it a great year!
