BOOK A KEYNOTE with Sue

Susan Szachowicz, a Senior Fellow with the International Center, is dedicated to ensuring all students achieve college and career readiness and firmly believes the ideology: “High expectations, high standards—no excuses.” She served students at Brockton High School, a large (4,300 student) comprehensive urban high school for her entire career and describes herself as Brockton High’s greatest cheerleader. Dr. Szachowicz continues to be committed to performance transformation at the school and in the state and has served on numerous state commissions on school improvement particularly regarding the Massachusetts assessment program.

In 1999, Szachowicz was appointed the Associate Principal for Curriculum and Instruction and in that capacity directed the school’s literacy initiatives to improve student achievement. She became Brockton High’s Principal in 2004 and has also taught graduate courses in history and education at Bridgewater State College and the University of Massachusetts Boston.
