Oxford Learning Center
“I am honored to receive this recognition.”
As the GED instructor at Oxford Learning Center, Mrs. Wortham is characterized as student – centered and innovative in her pedagogical approaches. With a cumulative total of over 13 years of experience as an educator, she has the innate ability to reach and inspire the genre of students that have often given up on themselves and their educational pursuits. Mrs. Wortham takes a personal interest in the success of each one of her students and strives to make the content relevant and interesting. She actively seeks to inspire each individual learner to reach their optimal potential in spite of the oppositions that often confront them in the pursuit of their academic endeavors.
Mrs. Wortham’s passion is evident in all that she endeavors to do. She seeks out and works diligently with community agencies to form partnerships designed to meet the diverse needs of each learner. Students are acutely aware of her consistent care and nurturing demeanor. She assumes an authentic interest in the successes and failures, the trials and triumphs that often come along with adolescents developing into productive and responsible citizens. We are proud to seize this opportunity to honor and recognize Mrs. Barbara Wortham as the Oxford Learning Center's selection for Employee of the Week.
