Susan Carter


Susan Carter: Comic. Speaker. Teacher.

Susan Carter is an Educator and Comic who learned to cope with everyday situations with humour. She has been teaching since she was seventeen (Red Cross Swim Lessons) and continues to teach today as a sub after her 30 year full time career.

Susan gathers her experiences from daily life and her many moves (four provinces and counting).  The current province is Alberta.

Teachers are you

Feeling isolated and overwhelmed?

Doing a job you love, but going a little crazy?

Working longer hours every year? Looking for a way to help students deal with bullies?

Feeling overwhelmed by budget constraints, technology and administration?

Susan knows you can’t fix it all, but you CAN deal with the little things that wear you down. She taught school for thirty years, twenty seven of which were in Junior High! She decided to start doing stand up as a solution to HER stress from Provincial Education struggles in 1992.

After experiencing Susan, you will be able to

Infuse humour into Monday, or maybe the whole week!

Make time for a shared joke in the staff room - especially the one about tweezers and the bathroom.

Start thinking of humour as teach-able.

Laugh at the system enough to find a solution - for you - for your class - for your family

Why not use Susan for a keynote AND breakout session on the same day?

Or for a keynote AND some humour at that breakfast meeting?

“You were the highlight for me. Everything you had talked about I could relate to. Like I said-even the underpants thing! Honest, you had me crying I was laughing so hard.”
