About umberhanief

I am program director of the ENGL/READ Learning Support program at Gwinnett Technical College. Like other instructors, I want to see my students enter a program and graduate ready to work in their field. We are currently piloting an accelerated program (using co-requisites) and will soon review our students' success.
