First Steps to Confidence—Susanna Brown Brings Focused Energy to Ann Arbor’s Youngest Citizens

Behind the voice is teacher Susanna Brown, who brings to the class a focused energy, her genuine love of children and a sincere belief in the mission of Ann Arbor’s First Steps program. The program gives parents and caregivers the support and encouragement they need in helping their children develop and grow in their first years of life. The 30-plus First Steps classes offered year-round through the Rec and Ed division of Ann Arbor Public Schools give children ages 0 to 5 a place to learn alongside a caring adult.
