Dale Boercker, Master Mentor & College Partnerships Academic Liaison
After attending a full day information session about ACE at Cabrillo College, Dale decided to attend the first FELI for ACE given at Ben Lomond Quaker Center in the summer of 2006. After completing the FELI, she was eager to co-teach her first Foundation Course at Las Positas. Dale has now worked with four cohorts of students. "It has been an amazing journey watching students who really did not believe they were college material succeed in college courses. I have been a math teacher for many years and watched basic skill students really struggle with figuring out how to do college. The ACE curriculum and cohort model gives students all the skills, academic and non-academic necessary to succeed" she says.
As the ACE program developed, Dale attended a second FELI training during the summer of 2007. Since then she has become a Master Mentor and teaches FELIs two or three times a year. "I continue to do this work because I believe the personal transformation and the potential for transforming education in at the community college are real and important."
