I would like to welcome you to the Maryland, DC, and Virginia Region for the Dominican University of California. My name is Elizabeth von Schwarz, and I am currently working at a public elementary school in the Washington DC area providing professional development to teachers. In addition, I am also an associate for Dominican University, which allows me to bring great professional development opportunities to you. Prior to working in the DC area, I taught in California for three years, while I pursued my Masters of Arts in Reading. As a fellow teacher, with over ten years of experience, I am delighted to share with you courses that are truly created with the teacher in mind. Teachers who have taken courses like this in the past have raved about how well prepared they are for the school year to start. No matter the years of experience, teachers have enjoyed taking the course and revamping their curriculum, working with other teachers, or delving deeper into new ideas or research they want to bring to their classroom.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have about the courses Dominican University has to offer.

I am looking forward to working with you this year!
