Susan F. Tierno, Ed.D.

Dr. Tierno’s education career has spanned K-12 to Higher Ed. Her educational foundation, Let’s Think-kids Foundation, Inc. brought forward social entrepreneurship dedicated to school partnerships with teachers, students and their families with specific training in the brain and how to think and learn. A member of Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities, she is a recipient of the National Creative Thinking Recognition Award for innovative programs for teachers, parents and kids from the Creative Thinking Association of America. 

Dr. Tierno holds a Ed.D. with a dissertation focused on Hispanic Parent Engagement, which has now evolved into her upcoming book “¡Andamio!: Engaging Hispanic Families for ELL Success Using Brain-Based Learning.” Dr. Tierno’s life experiences—and growing up within a military family that descended from immigrants—formed her thinking and shaped her career of service to parents, students and her fellow teachers.
