Ms. Surunis

I am so excited to return to Upper St. Clair this school year after teaching at Canon-McMillan High School for the last three years. I previously worked at the high school as a long-term sub, and I am so happy to be back! This year, I will be teaching MYP English 9 and MYP English 10

I attended the University of Pittsburgh where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities and a Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Education. While in college, I played for the University's club volleyball team and coached the team for two years during and after graduate school. I am Pittsburgh born and raised and so very proud to continue my career here!

When I am not teaching, you will find me coaching both girls and boys high school volleyball for Canon Mac (sorry, Panthers!!), playing with my new puppy Waylon, painting or drawing, travelling as much as possible, and enjoying as much live music as I can! I am so excited to join the USCHS community and cannot wait to begin an awesome year together!
