About Mrs. Acuña:
Sue loves teaching grades 5-8; in fact, she is our resident middle school expert since coauthoring her book with Cynthia Tobias, Middle School, The Inside Story: What Kids Tell Us But Don't Tell You. Sue and her husband Paul have raised four grown children, half of whom live in California. This gives her the opportunity to pursue her love for travel as she uses visiting them as an excuse to follow the sunshine. Her other interests include directing the choir at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Federal Way, reading several books at once, and speaking to parents and teachers across the country about middle schoolers.
