Presenter(s) Biography

Maureen McDermott, Ed.D., joined the FCE in the Secondary English department at Nova Southeastern University in January 2005. Her research and publications focus on writing process methods, technology integration into the language arts curriculum, and challenging stereotyping to reduce stigma of marginalized populations. Since publishing her Master’s thesis about the writing process in 1993, she has continued to research and redefine her own approach to writing while sharing her work with others in the classroom and at local, state, national, and international conferences. Dr. McDermott has been a certified teacher consultant with the National Writing Project since 2003 with almost two decades of experience in the K-12 environment before coming to NSU.

In August 2001, Laura Budnyk started teaching at St. Clare Catholic School (K-8) in Palm Beach County where she is the head of the English Language Arts department. She has been a part of Catholic education for over thirty years starting as a student in elementary school and continuing through college; she graduated from the University of Notre Dame. While teaching English at the middle school level, she is also pursuing her M.S. in Secondary English Education at Nova Southeastern University.
