NCCVT Adult Ed Teacher Named DE Adult Ed Educator of the Year

Jenn Morrow, Adult Basic Education Coordinator and an ABE/GED teacher for the NCC Vo-Tech Adult Education Division, was named Delaware's Educator of the Year by the Delaware Association for Adult and Community Education at its annual summit this past weekend.   Morrow has 18 years of experience in adult education, including many years teaching math for the James Groves Adult High School, where she was previously named Teacher of the Year.   One colleague wrote in support of her nomination,"We instructors are used to hearing feedback from students about her constant support and thoughtful ways of helping them. She is an excellent math teacher. She has helped many students with math anxiety to develop the confidence and knowledge to pass the GED."  Another wrote, "Beginning in the summer of 2020, and  with the awareness of the obstacles that many of our students would face in accessing and navigating the online world, Jenn began to investigate what it would take to get our students back to learning.  Jenn began researching online platforms, as well as materials and websites that would best suit our students’ needs.  She spoke with vendors, purchased seats on on-line platforms, and bought new materials.   By October, we had a plan in place with all of the teachers on-board and ready to begin teaching ABE/GED classes remotely.  Our program’s success in this year of virtual learning is largely due to her tireless efforts and determination to make it happen."  NCC Vo-Tech Adult Ed Division Director Annemarie Linden said Morrow was one of the finest individuals she has had the pleasure of working with in her 30-plus years in education.  "We look to her for her positive energy, thoughtfulness toward all challenges, innovative ideas and approaches, and as a force that keeps us moving forward," she said.
