Level I Teacher
Mary Stearns is the Level I - Adult Basic Education room instructor.
Mary graduated with majors in English and Early Childhood Education.
She taught 1st grade in Evanston, Illinois before moving to Milwaukee, where she and her husband raised their 3 children. Fortunate enough to be a stay at home mother, Mary was very active in the community as a volunteer at church, children's schools, and the Milwaukee Art Museum.
Her work as a volunteer tutor teaching adults has led to nearly 20 years in adult literacy programs. She has served as a volunteer coordinator, an interim executive director, an outreach program coordinator, and a tutor trainer in Adult Basic Education, English as a Second Language, and GED/HSED preparation.
