Mrs. Susan Bahl

Hello! My name is Mrs. Susan Bahl and I will be your child’s 4th grade Challenge teacher this year.

I've been a member of the Salk team since 2004 and I've had the pleasure of working at many roles including:  3rd grade Challenge, 2nd grade general education, 4th grade Challenge and 5th grade Challenge.  I haven't always been a teacher, though.  Prior to earning my M. Ed. from DePaul University in June of 2003, I worked in business where I was able to utilize my undergraduate degree in Information Technology.

On a personal note, I was in your shoes at one time as I have a collage-aged daughter who was also in gifted education through elementary, middle, and high school.  She is currently working on a neuroscience degree at Loyola University in Chicago.

When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband of almost 24 years and our four Cocker Spaniels. 

I look forward to working with you and your student this year at Jonas Salk.  I know that we are going to make lots of great memories together. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time.  Below you will find links to some of the websites I use frequently.
