Meet the Staff: Ann Bardone
Ann Bardone first started with the Nashville Adult Literacy Council as a volunteer in the One-on-One Program in 2004. When her learner moved, she came on as a staff member, working in the office and teaching an English class. Tutoring and teaching were very rewarding experiences, and Ann enjoyed helping others better understand life in the United States.
Ann left Nashville and our program for five years while living in another state, but swiftly returned to the NALC when she moved back in 2010. As Program Assistant, her current role is varied but vital; you may see her around the office, coordinating Start Now, or helping with events. Most One-on-One tutors and learners will meet with Ann once or twice a year as we check up on our learners’ goals and progress. Say hi the next time you see her!
