Red is the creator of Kids' Wings. She holds a Master's Degree
in Education with Kindergarten Certification.
She has taught all grades, headed her school district's language curriculum,
and pioneered the creation of interdisciplinary literature guides that
are used enthusiastically all over the world.
classroom teacher and curriculum specialist in the public schools for
over 20 years, Suzy Red has developed her unique teaching techniques
through experiences in the classroom. She has always looked for
the better way to inspire, motivate, and challenge young minds.
She believes in singing, doing logic puzzles, using hands to create,
interactive discussion, and character above all. At a time when
drill-and-kill became the norm, dictated by standardized testing, she
set out to prove that real life lessons through powerful literature
and active techniques did more to prepare students for success than
did the mindless torture of repetitive worksheets and multiple choice
tests. It was rare, indeed, for one of her students to score
below 90 on any standardized test. As UIL writing coach, her students
consistently won top awards even in tough competition. Their success
and love of challenge proved her methods correct. Enchanted
by learning, they formed connections through authentic projects, to
put their learning to practical use.
taught workshops on reading, writing, music, testing, and integrating
the curriculum to educators throughout the state of Texas. Her
workshops provided creative, time-tested curriculum ideas presented
with music, fun, and lots of interaction! It was not unusual to
hear participants comment that hers was the "best workshop I've ever
attended" and that they could "hardly wait for school to start again"
so they could put the fresh ideas to work.
Kids' Wings we are concerned with the deterioriating condition of the
character in our country. Traditional values and standards are
under attack by a few and foreshadow disintegrating ideals to our youngsters.
We pledge allegiance to ONE NATION UNDER GOD! We carry money that
states IN GOD WE TRUST! Why, then, is His name so often treated
as the enemy in our classrooms? Why are we more likely to hear His name
used in cursing than in reverence? When we waver in our allegiance
and our trust, we weaken our country's foundation. It is NOT
illegal to say God's name in our classrooms; yet, that is the message
our children are getting. If the character of our country's kids seems
to be getting lost, someone is forgetting to give them direction! The
main direction is UP.... We're doing it to ourselves!
are proud of our family and believe that families everywhere need to
be celebrated! So, come on in and see our family!
