Opinion: Special teacher earns accolades
The staff of Addison County Vermont Adult Learning would like to recognize a very special teacher. This month marks Mary Worthington’s 35th anniversary teaching for Vermont Adult Learning. During this time she has touched the lives of hundreds of adults in Addison County helping them learn to read and write, do math, and speak and write English as a second language.
From visiting people in their homes in the early days of adult education to helping them through distance learning today, Mary has been at the forefront of adult education. For 35 years she has found innovative ways to help students learn and she continues to be a pioneer today as she introduces her emerging readers to iPads and her English language learners to the SmartBoard. Whether one-on-one or in larger classes, Mary meets her students where they are and helps them grow into what they hope to be. We are honored to have such a dedicated teacher and invite the Addison County community to join us in thanking Mary for her many years of hard work.
