Sue Haynes
Bio: 

Over the past thirty years Sue has taught in a variety of classrooms, including adult ed, high school, elementary schools, College of the Atlantic, and tutoring in her home. With Masters degrees in Special Education (Wheelock College) and Literacy (University of Maine), she particularly values her experiences with at-risk learners, often with the labels of AD(H)D and/or LD. Through reconceptualizing them as creative learners, she has developed empowering approaches for working with them. Sue has explored these experiences in chapters in several education publications (including The Indigo Children Ten Years Later by Lee Carroll and Jan Tober) as well as her book about creative learning. Two years ago Sue moved across the country from Bar Harbor, Maine to Portland. As she reseeds her life in the Pacific Northwest, she has established a private tutoring/consulting practice in the St. Johns neighborhood. Sue also gives presentations on her book, Creative Mavericks: Beacons of Authentic Learning and networks with progressive Portland educators and parents.
