Ms. Sue

School Age Teacher/Preschool Assistant Teacher 

Hello! My name is Sue Shove. I am the Before and After School Age Care Teacher and Assistant Preschool Teacher in the Preschool Program. I attended Wayne State University then graduated from Detroit Business Institute. I am married and have three college age children. After the birth of my twins, I become a stay at home Mom. When they started preschool, I got a job as a Playground/Lunch Supervisor at Heritage Elementary School and have been at Heritage ever since.

My love of the outdoors a being physically active stated when I was a child. I was always outside. My parents took the family traveling with a travel trailer and we camped and visited many National and State parks. They signed me up for any and every sport and program at the neighborhood YMCA that was available. I was a Girl Scout, played in the marching band and played many sports in school. My love for children gave me the opportunity to be a Girl Scout Leader for 12 years and to participate in numerous Girl Scout, Boy Scout and band camps and events.

I love working at Building Blocks Preschool since I was hired in 2015. I believe in the Reggio Emilia Approach and appreciate the way all everyone works together for the benefit of the children and for each other at the school. We are all lifelong learners who strive to learn more because of the children. Our close connection with each child and family along with our commitment to our community makes it a pleasure to work here.
