Susan Mulcaire is a teacher and attorney who obsesses about “missing link” skills, and building contextual knowledge for learning at a higher level. In 2007, Susan formed Tween Publishing originally focusing on curriculum for the middle level. At Tween, she tackled such missing links to achievement as work habits, time management, and organizational skills in The Middle School Student’s Guide to Ruling the World. She followed up with a fun introduction to post-secondary in The 21st Century Student’s Guide to College, and a popular comprehensive study skills curriculum The Middle School Student’s Guide to Study Skills.
In 2015, she put her curriculum skills and knowledge as a former banking, finance and FDIC attorney to task to create The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy – Going Global, a 17 lesson, big picture exploration of money, commerce, innovation and entrepreneurship. That was followed by The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy – Getting Personal, an 18 lesson personal finance and money management curriculum.
Susan frequently presents at education conferences and is the author of many educational articles including “Are Your Students Prepared for the Organizational Demands of Middle School?,” NMSA’s Middle E-Connections, September 2007, “Messy Binders & Missing Assignments: Can the Chronically Disorganized Middle School Student be Helped?” (NYSMSA’s In Transition, Spring 2008), “Addressing the Middle School Organizational Skills Conundrum,” (FASA’s Communicator, Winter 2009) and “Welcome to the University of Middle School!” NMSA’s Middle Ground, October 2009.
