Departing Faculty: Susan Marianelli

by Nina Taneja on Friday, June 9th, 2017

Ms. Marianelli is one of those few teachers that you might have for only a semester of CEPS or attend a few meetings with, but one that you will never forget. She is charismatic, beyond kind, and a joy to know and have as a teacher and mentor. The fearless leader of Milton’s speech and debate teams, and an integral part of speech and communication at Milton, Ms. Marianelli will be retiring this year. After decades of teaching at Milton, Ms. Marianelli’s departure brings great sadness to students and faculty alike.

Ms. Marianelli is the core of the public speaking program at Milton; she is present in every aspect of communication at Milton. She walks freshman through Class IV Talks with humor and wit, guiding them through their first speaking experience at Milton. She teaches Current Events and Public Speaking, exploring the basics of informative speaking to an audience, including enunciating and tone, but also covers including nuance and opinion. She coaches not only one, but two of Milton’s speaking teams: Speech and Debate. The Milton Magazine cited that Ms. Marianelli listens to over 2,000 speeches a year. Known for her talent across the country, Ms. Marianelli was inducted into the Massachusetts Speech Hall of Fame, and even received a George Mason University Mentor award.

When asked how she would describe her time at Milton, Ms. Marianelli fondly stated that “these years have been an amazing journey with unbelievable growth, success, failure, and many wonderful memories.” Ms. Marianelli loved her time teaching at Milton; saying “the autonomy that I have in my classroom has been the greatest part of teaching. I came here because I wanted the freedom to teach in my way to the students – within the guidelines of the course – but with my own style molded to the dynamics of the class.”

Whether in class or in the Speech and Debate world, Ms. Marianelli has deeply impacted the students she has worked with. Soleil Devonish (II), current Speech captain, said that, “my experiences traveling with Ms. Marianelli, whether for speech or for the Prague Chamber trip, have been incredible. She shares so many of her hilarious stories. That’s definitely something I’ll miss next year!” Isabel Greenberg (II), former CEPS student of Ms. Marianelli, said, “Ms. Marianelli is a great influence on the Milton Academy campus. She helps students feel confident in their ability to speak publicly and brings out the best in all.”

Ms. Marianelli cites her favorite memories at Milton as “long talks with the students. Talking about anything from world peace to man buns. The students are vibrant, excited, and intelligent. They give me hope for the future for this country and the world.” Marshall Sloane (I), National Speech Champion and former team captain, said that Ms. Marianelli “has had a tremendous impact on [his] Milton experience. Her mentorship and support has always been fantastic. She transformed [his] speaking and academic ability”. Regarding the speech team, Marshall added that “the program would have never achieved such high levels of success without Ms. Marianelli. Every student that worked with her appreciated the chance to do so”.

The love and warmth shown by Ms. Marianelli to all members of the Milton community, whether they are National Speech champions or one-semester students of hers, illustrates her kindness and drive. She truly revolutionized communication and speech at Milton, and her legacy will remain at the heart of the Milton experience. She plans on moving to Indiana for her retirement. A great thank you to Ms. Marianelli for all that you have done for us!
