Name: Suzanna Pollak, Middle School ELA Teacher
How long have you been teaching? 13 years total; 6 at All Saints
What is the best part of your job? I get to talk about books all day!!
If you had a superpower for the day, what would it be? I'd love to be invisible for a day.
What is your favorite kind of music? I like different kinds of music for different purposes - classical when I'm working, 80's rock when I'm running, Adele when I'm alone in the car, and country when I'm hanging out with friends.
Do you have any pets? Not at that moment. We were Boxer parents for 13 years, and I'd love to rescue another when our schedule better allows it.
Do you have a hidden talent? If yes, what is it? Not that I know of! Well, my parents would say I can talk nonstop without even taking a breath. Does that count?
What is your favorite type of book to read? I devour books and love all types of literary fiction.
What did you want to be when you grew up? A teacher and/or a writer.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? Anywhere? Money is no object? Then, Carmel, California.
What was your first job? I babysat and I worked at the concession stand at Calf Pasture Beach.
Any other fun facts? I'm not only an ASCS teacher; I'm also an ASCS parent! I have two daughters who attend All Saints. We are grateful to be a part of this fantastic community! Before becoming a teacher, I was an event planner, so I was able to experience all sorts of cool activities like skydiving and race car driving. Also, my summer reading goal is 30 books, and I'd love for my middle school students to beat me!
