At Wright State, Sue Ann Fox majored in Spanish and history, with teaching certification. She graduated summa cum laude as both a University Honors Scholar and a Modern Language Honors Scholar. Sue earned a Master of Humanities Degree from WSU in 1987 and then took additional graduate courses in order to earn her permanent teaching certificate.
At Beavercreek High School in 1983, Sue helped introduce the advanced placement Spanish language course into the curriculum. She accompanied her students to the annual Spanish Immersion Day program at WSU and invited WSU Spanish professors to share their literary and cultural expertise with her students. Many of her students chose to attend WSU and, according to their professors, they were very well prepared for their Spanish courses. She was chosen as one of Beavercreekâ€™s Outstanding Teachers of the Year in 2002 and retired from teaching that same year.
Sue devotes a great portion of her time to serving as chair of the worship committee at St. Andrew United Methodist Church. As a volunteer tutor for the Miami Valley Literacy Council, she teaches English to native Spanish-speakers. Sue enjoys cross-stitching, reading history, and taking vacations spent driving along the old state routes rather than the interstates. Sue is an inveterate collector of note cards, and she makes good use of them by writing at least one letter a week â€“ the nice, old-fashioned kind with envelopes and stamps!
