Maria Skowronski is a graduate assistant and teacher candidate with the Masters of Arts in Teaching program here at Shepherd University. She received her B.S. in English Literature and Language from Towson University. While a student at Towson, Maria spent much of her free time reading, tutoring in the writing center, and serving in building councils and the SGA. It was the semester she spent abroad in northern England, however, that convinced Maria she wanted to teach English to eager learners abroad. Until that dream is realized, Maria will read, hike, and travel as often as she can.
