THE TEAM AT TWLC-WARREN
Dedication, Expertise & a Passion for Learning!
Our teaching staff consists entirely of NJ certified educators with advanced graduate degrees whose many years of classroom experience guarantee expert differentiated instruction for each of our students. Like Barbara Henke, the late founder of Today’s World Learning Center, our teachers utilize teaching techniques and “best practices” honed in the same grade level classrooms of those students with whom they work at TWLC of Warren. Our teachers’ expertise in instructional strategies and integration of the Common Core Standards complement the rigors and goals of our programs. On-going professional development helps to assure our teachers deliver our program with expectations on the federal, state, and local levels. Combined, our staff brings decades of classroom teaching experience and expertise to the language arts programs at Today’s World Learning Center of Warren.
Owner & Director
With 18 years of experience in education, program management and leadership development, I'm thrilled to bring the world of literature and writing to our students. I have a wide range of experience teaching and working with students, from teaching in traditional classrooms and adolescent mental health facilities to coordinating youth advocacy initiatives at the United Nations. A life-long learner, I have taught at Rutgers and TCNJ, and am currently in the dissertation phase of my doctorate at Drew University. I hold a B.A. in English, M.A. in Women's and Gender Studies, and Ed.M. in Counseling Psychology, and have participated in study abroad programs in Ireland, Japan and Poland. When not teaching, I love spending time with my husband Matt, son Timmy, daughter Trixie, and dogs Simon and Summer; traveling to new places near and far; and reading memoirs, dystopias and classic fiction. My goal, in part, is to foster a passion and respect for literature and writing that each student will carry long into the future.
