Winter 2019

Meet Bridget Barker, our new Adult Learner Services Coordinator.

Her background makes her a perfect fit for this diverse community-based adult education program, which encompasses everything from recruiting, training, and matching tutors with students, to leading the Friday ESL discussion group, to reaching out to local non-profit organizations and assessing how DALC can help with their adult education needs.

Donors: Our Silent Partners. Over the years, nearly 600 individuals and organizations have made donations to Dover Adult Learning Center. Without the support of each of you, we would not be able to help our students overcome barriers to success.  Childcare, scholarships and the counselor’s emergency fund all rely on your donations to exist. Your donations are as important to our students’ success as tables and whiteboards, books and computers.  You are the silent beating heart behind all we do. Thank you!

Debbie Liskow, Adult Tutorial Coordinator since 2000, retires.

Her patient and compassionate service will be missed, but how can we help but delight in her chance to spend time with her grandchildren and doing her favorite activities.

Accomplishments this School Year

As always, we celebrate our graduates, but also take a look at some behind-the-scenes achievements critical for adults seeking to move to forward on their education and career path. One example, after finishing ESL for Health Careers, a new class created this year, students have plans to start an LNA business or explore Medical Assistant training at Great Bay Community College.
