First Literacy is delighted to welcome Lenore Balliro as our new Director of Programs. Ms. Balliro has worked with adult basic education programs in New England for over 25 years. Before joining First Literacy, she held positions at the Adult Literacy Resource Institute/SABES and World Education. Her area of specialization is professional development, and she brings experience as an ESOL and ABE instructor, program director, editor, and education consultant to her work with teachers and programs. Ms. Balliro is especially interested in the intersection of expressive arts and the acquisition of literacy and language.
We look forward to Ms. Balliro adding her skills to the services First Literacy offers to adult learners, educators, and programs.
