Susan Collins became a Master Clinician with Tennessee Technological University in September 2011. Her primary responsibilities are to work with the faculty, students, and regional school teachers/districts as TTU begins to implement the Ready2Teach redesign within their teacher education program. Prior to working as a Master Clinician, Susan taught deaf students, primarily at the Tennessee School for the Deaf, for fifteen years. During her years of teaching she served on various school committees, provided professional development activities for staff, and mentored practicum students/student teachers. . Upon moving to Cookeville, Susan has interpreted classes at TTU for a deaf student, volunteered in the local schools, and worked toward her masters’ degree in elementary education. While working on her masters, she was a graduate assistant in the Office of Teacher Education at TTU. This experience has enabled her to establish relationships with TTU partner schools and personnel, TTU faculty, and TTU administration. All this experience has prepared Susan for her important role as a Master Clinician with the Ready2Teach program.
