Meet the Teacher
My name is Susan Smith, and I am the Librarian for Our Lady School. I was born in a small town in Indiana; Frankfort to be exact. I moved to Fort Wayne as a teenager and have lived here, except for a 10 year stretch when I lived in Arizona, all my life. I married my high school sweetheart, and we have 5 children, 4 girls and 1 boy. We were married 34 years when he passed away in 2006. My children were all raised in the Catholic school system and attended St. Vincent de Paul and Bishop Dwenger in Indiana and Christ the King and Seton Catholic High School in Arizona.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from IPFW in general studies with concentrations in English, History, and Labor Relations, and I have a Master of Science degree from Indiana State University in Criminal Justice. Although my main career in the past was as a litigation paralegal, I still have found time to work as an aide and substitute teacher for the Fort Wayne South Bend Diocese, as well as hours of volunteer work at St. Vincent when my children were in school -janitor, kitchen help, secretary, substitute teacher, and director of all plays and musicals.
My goal as the Librarian is to open our children’s eyes and imaginations to God’s beautiful world around them through reading.
The library will be open before classes begin in the morning and for a short time after the school day has ended to assist students with the return of their library books.
