Susan Cox


I’m Susan Cox, and I’m teaching all of 8th grade Language Arts and two sections of 7th. I recently moved to Utah from Georgia with my husband and two cats. Florida is actually where I’m from, but circumstances took me to the Peach State where I lived for twelve years. 

My education background includes a B.A.E. in Secondary English Education from the University of North Florida and a MSEd. from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. I began my teaching career at the age of eighteen as a 6th Reading Lab aide in Fernandina Beach, Florida and progressed to founding a parent co-op, teaching in private and public schools, and teaching English and Literature to Chinese students through an online company.

I am excited to be part of the Hawthorn family and look forward to what looks to be a unique school year!
