“Sue is the face of Orchard Hills Elementary. She has been a part of the school since the day it opened. She is the first person everyone meets when they come to the school. Sue makes everyone feel so welcome. She is a blessing to those who only speak Spanish. She is able to talk to them in their native language which creates a much more inviting environment. She takes care of the teachers, students, and parents of the Orchard Hills community. She is someone who helps those around her become better.”
