Description

Class Experience

For over twenty years, I have been working as a librarian teaching literacy classes to students from elementary school to college. For six years, I was a librarian for Prince George’s County Memorial Library System covering the Reference and Children’s sections. For over 10 years, I have been an adjunct full professor at the University of Maryland Global Campus teaching research paper writing and data analysis. For six years, I was teaching Developmental Reading to college freshmen at Prince George’s Community College. For two years, I was a library media specialist at Prince George’s County Public School System teaching narrative text by using the Dork Diaries book series.
