Mrs. Glassman

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Molly Glassman

Welcome! Since 2005 I have been teaching English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) at Padonia International Elementary in Cockeysville, MD. We have 100 ESOL students in Pre-kindergarten through grade 5 who speak 19 different languages.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in mass communication from Towson University in 1978, and for 23 years I worked as a journalist at four different newspapers in Maryland. In 2003, I began teaching ESOL in Baltimore County after receiving my Masters of Arts in Teaching ESOL at Notre Dame University of Maryland. In 2011, I also became highly qualified as a reading specialist by completing my Certificate in Reading Instruction at Goucher College. My hobbies include gardening, reading, writing, and eating my husband's gourmet cooking.

It's wonderful to be part of the Padonia community, where staff, parents, and students celebrate our cultural diversity. What a great place to be an ESOL teacher!
