After successfully establishing and developing one of the strongest arts charter school programs in North Carolina as Artistic Director and Principal for eight years, Sue Kemple and her family faced some serious looming health crises, and she decided it was time to make some big changes, both personally and professionally. She reclaimed her health and reinvented herself, returning to her first career as a professional writer and editor, and taking her second career in education to a new level – training teachers to effectively manage their classrooms with compassion, confidence, and a good dose of humor.
Sue obtained her education as a Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and is certified by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, in addition to her earlier higher education studies at Rutgers University and the University of Massachusetts. She is the founder of the North Carolina Center for Arts in Education, an online think tank for educational revolution, and serves as an Educational Consultant and Associate Trainer with the Center for Teacher Effectiveness headquartered in Hayden Lake, Idaho. The self-published author of The Simple Path to a Vibrant Life, Five Principles That Make for Healthy Principals, and And We Danced - Lament for a Brother, Sue is currently working on several forthcoming books as co-author or ghostwriter.

Sue and her family live a rich, happy, and healthy life in beautiful Raleigh, North Carolina.
