Papa, Susan



Degrees and Certifications:

Papa, Susan

My name is Susan Papa and I have had the pleasure of teaching at MacArthur Elementary School for many years.  A native of the El Paso area, I graduated from Coronado High School and received my BS in Elementary Education from Regis University in Denver, Colorado.


I have four amazing children: Jaime, Matthew, Mia and Mownee (my 14 year old Poodle). I love to teach, garden, travel, work on craft projects, read, and spend time with my family.  


As a teacher, I know that all children can learn in a safe nurturing classroom where they are valued for who they are. With time practice, and a variety of instructional methods, children can develop socially, emotionally, and educationally.  Using hands on activities and working together, we learn to respect and celebrate each person’s uniqueness.  We also learn to work to achieve our own potential.
