"The BEACON staff provides excellent support for volunteers including training and networking sessions. The textbook includes step-by-step lesson plans and supplemental activities. Handouts and worksheets can be printed by the BEACON staff and delivered to teachers on their classrooms. The students are eager learners. Working with them and seeing their progress is a joy."
Has taught with BEACON since September 2010.
"I first got involved in ESL work when my husband was stationed in Germany. I taught a conversation class in a German high school. After we returned to the United States, I was trained in the Laubach Literacy Program. I have been involved with literacy work wherever we have lived and I love it!"
Hobbies include reading, golf, bowling, travel and spending time with family as well as volunteering.
