ARTC bids Rob Grey a fond farewell as he moves into the next stage of his career with the DE Deparment of Education in Dover. We will miss his talents, insights, enthusiasm and humor, but we are grateful we will be able to collaborate with him as he takes on a new perspective to our work of improving education opportunities for all Delaware students.
ARTC warmly welcomes both Ann Hilkert and Liz Terlecki to our staff. Ann will be helping the Master’s Plus Certification Program candidates through their two-year trek toward certification and a master’s degree in Special Education. She brings years of successful experience working with special needs students and supervising special educators in the Brandywine School District as well as years of helping to shape new teachers for the classroom as an instructor at Wilmington University.
Liz Terlecki brings to ARTC a wealth of experience as a classroom teacher, educational diagnostician and curriculum supervisor working in schools with high-risk populations. She will help guide the ARTC candidates seeking certification in secondary special education through their courses and classroom learning curves. And she will help design and deliver a variety of ARTC workshops and courses required for certification.
Welcome aboard, Ann and Liz!

Through ARTC, qualified individuals complete certification requirements while they are employed as full-time teachers, through a state-approved program of professional education course work, accompanied by intensive, school-based supervision and mentoring in lieu of student teaching.
