    Teacher Biography
    Hello! I am Susan Bell and I am happy to be teaching this year at Freedom.
    I attended Wellesley College and graduated with a degree in Biology.  I did research in a science lab at Massachusetts General Hospital, then earned an MEd. in Secondary Science from Boston College.  After a year of teaching, I moved to Virginia and stayed home with my four children.
    I worked at Lunsford Middle School and as a long term sub at Freedom, before beginning a program in Special Education at George Mason and becoming a special education teacher at Trailside Middle School.  I have a license in special education with endorsements in Middle school science and Biology. I want to inspire and guide students as they build connections with each other, the curriculum, and their world! I love the challenge of finding creative ways to interest students and let them show what they have learned.  
    I live in the Freedom area with my husband and 4 children.  I have two students at Virginia Tech and one who is a Junior in high school and is hoping to play football sometime this year.  My oldest teaches for LCPS in another school.  We like to play board games like Settlers of Catan and 7 Wonders, find interesting words in the dictionary, visit museums, hike, and hang out with our Finnish Spitz dog.  This summer I read, spent time with my family, and was quarantined in Massachusetts for 2 weeks as an out of state traveler.
