My professional development activities are extensive. They include workshops on teaching reading and writing to middle school, high school, college, and adult learners.
This is my second year teaching literacy at the RAPCS and I am excited!
My career started with preparing adults to take the GED exam. I then moved into the management and supervision of adult education programs, which included adult basic education, English as a second language, family literacy, and GED classes. Occasionally, I taught reading and English literature courses to freshmen at Delaware County Community College. Most recently, I worked for the School District of Philadelphia as a high school English teacher. I taught 11th grade American Literature, 12th grade British Literature, and 12th grade Advance Placement English Literature and Composition.
I am a wife, mother, and grandmother with two adult children and four grandchildren.
I am a genealogy enthusiast!
