What keeps you at DRC?
I feel like I am giving back, I just love to see it when my students “get it.” Tutoring makes me warm and fuzzy. I do admit to liking instant gratification and to watch my students blossom is the best.
Most rewarding experience as a tutor
I will have my first student graduate soon and I am really excited about it. I remember working with this student on his very first day and to see how he has grown and blossomed in his reading is remarkable. Recently, at the end of a tutoring session one of my students was about to leave, but he stopped, turned to me and without a word gave me a hug! All together, aaawwww.
I am the sister of Pete Ducklow (former DRC executive director). I have two boys (both married), and one granddaughter. I also have two cats who are exceedingly helpful in all I do. I have a boyfriend, Doug, who is a lawyer who works with Nancy’s son. Doug and I met at Nancy’s son’s wedding AND he Doug is now on the DRC Board of Directors.
What inspires you?
The look on a student’s face when they get it right.
