Economics & Government

Mrs. Sunderman believes in the importance of connecting with students through their passions. Leanne takes time out of her schedule each day to assist in the auto lab, then takes what she has learned and designs lesson plans that couple academics and passions. She has chaperoned field trips to National Trails, Ohio Technical College and the Ford Motor Plant this year. She shares that she enjoys encouraging non-traditional female students who have entered into a male-dominated work force. Next year she will begin teaching a College Micro/Macro Economics course. She forged a partnership with Hocking College to offer the students additional dual enrollment opportunities. She believes that anything that limits opportunities for students and parents should be moved out of the way!
