Organizers of the English as a Second Language program in Rehoboth Beach recently welcomed Barbara Greenway as its new program director. A former ESL teacher from Frederick and Montgomery counties in Maryland, Greenway succeeded Jesica Sepulveda effective April 1.
Sponsored by the Lutheran Church of Our Savior in Rehoboth Beach, the program was founded in 2003. It has grown from 45 adult students to 150 or more each year. Classes taught by volunteers are offered mornings and evenings during the fall and winter. A childcare program is provided for students’ children while they are in class.
“We are very pleased to have Ms. Greenway on board. Her professional background with English language learners will help us continue to improve and to grow our program,” said Janine Fitzgerald, ESL Advisory Board chair.
Greenway earned her master’s degree with coursework in ESL and the reading specialist programs at Hood College in Maryland, and her bachelor’s degree in education from Fairmont State College in West Virginia. She is currently a volunteer at the Community Resource Center in Rehoboth Beach and a volunteer ESL teacher in Millsboro.
