I would not be leading my organization today, and I would not be leading it nearly as well, if not for my Notre Dame education. What I learned was practical, it was insightful, and it was exactly what I needed.”

A Proven Leader as a Math Mentor

Denise Parker

Leadership in Teaching: Mathematics Instructional Leader

My participation in the Math Leadership Program has not only helped me to become a proven leader in my school community as a math mentor, but in the Archdiocesan community as well. This past fall I had the opportunity to facilitate a professional development session on problem solving at two of the Fall ADW Collaboration Day meetings, where I shared research, NCTM standards, and proven strategies learned in the Math Leadership Program.

New & Exciting Roles

The Mathematics Leadership Program has provided me with the knowledge and skills needed to become a math leader. By completing this program, I have been given opportunities to continue to build my leadership skills and offered several new and exciting roles and duties at my school.

A Teacher of Teachers

Patricia Shoults

Leadership in Teaching: Reading Specialist

I had never thought about being anything but a classroom teacher; yet after years of experience, I considered becoming a reading specialist. This led me to Notre Dame’s Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach Program, where I learned that I could also be a teacher of teachers. Reaching teachers is reaching students, and isn’t that why we all entered this profession?

Benefits I Could See

Maggie Wagner

Leadership in Teaching: Reading Specialist

The last few classes in my program really enabled me to feel successful as a reading teacher. Through experiences and case studies with students, I was able to see the benefits of my instruction and interventions. I found that I really enjoy providing professional development to colleagues. As I end this program, I feel assured in furthering my career as a Reading Specialist or Literacy Coach. I believe I am well prepared and knowledgeable in the existing field of literacy instruction.

Rigorous Instruction & Guidance

Jennifer James Henry

Leadership in Teaching: Reading Specialist

Notre Dame of Maryland University has equipped me to be an effective reading specialist by the rigorous instruction and guidance that I received during my course of study. I learned current theories and practices from both my professors and my peers.
