Suzanne Moss is the kind of teacher who excels at reaching ambitious goals with inadequate resources. An educator with 16 years of experience, Moss volunteered last year to be the first-grade English teacher in Foothill's inaugural Chinese dual-immersion program and took to the task with confidence.

After 20 of her students started the year below grade level in reading, Moss began offering after-school tutoring for students on her own time. Ten of those students are now back on track, with Moss continuing to work with the others twice a week.

Moss is known for her captivating and fun approaches to learning. She regularly arrives early and stays late to make herself available to parents and students, and she prepares a weekly newsletter to communicate information and encourage volunteerism.
