Suzanne Leon

Transition Coach



Meet Suzanne

I’ve known since I was a child that I wanted to be a teacher. My parents bought me a blackboard and some chalk and I haven't looked back. I became dually certified in regular and special education at the University of Maryland, College Park and earned a M.Ed. in the area of Learning Disabilities from the University of Virginia. In 2017, I became a Certified Professional Coach through IPEC, the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching which is accredited by the International Coach Federation.


Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really amazing students who have also been my teachers. Some of my favorite students have been those who struggled with ADD and ADHD. They were some bright, funny and creative kids who challenged their teachers and parents to expand their toolkits, so to speak, to create new ways of reaching and teaching them. 


Now, I am using my experience as a teacher and a coach to offer a pathway for my clients to achieve their hopes and dreams in an environment that offers education, support, accountability and acceptance.
