Dolores has joined this new Fusion Columbia site as an English/Language Arts teacher. She has a BA in English, and has worked in Baltimore in the nonprofit literacy arena, where she earned a Master’s in Nonprofit Management. The literacy programs help residents to gain their High School Diploma, and works with all ages who have dropped out of school.
She has always been a natural teacher, helping siblings and classmates with homework, and went into training positions in general after college. But having her own children got her more interested in the education system, and how public schools fail students with any special needs. After becoming part of the solution in Baltimore, she is now excited to be part of the transformation of students at Fusion.
In her spare time, Dolores writes poetry, paints or draws, and enjoys being a lifelong learner.
