Susan Gebhard (better known as "Dr. G." in educational circles) currently works as a K-6 gifted resource specialist with Seneca Valley. But, during her thirty-plus year career in education, she has held various P K-12school-based roles, has served as university-level teacher-education faculty and administrator, and also (briefly) forayed into corporate instructional design. A Duke Blue Devil, Susan received her initial teaching certification as an M.A.T. at the University of Pittsburgh and completed her Ed.D. at Duquesne University. And, because she actually believes this life-long learning stuff, she recently completed additional graduate studies for Education of the Gifted and STE(A)M. Susan enjoys reading for and and publishing of context-based educational action research, with a special passion for professional conferences and presentation. Susan holds both NC and PA professional teaching licensures across a variety of content areas. Susan’s background has led to her staunch social constructivist pedagogy, one grounded solidly on a foundation of transdisciplinary liberal studies. She believes understanding is more important than knowledge, process trumps product, and meaningful learning transcends content delivery and situate discoveries within real-world phenomena.
