Neuburger has been in education for more than 35 years, teaching in junior and senior-level high schools, as well as at the college-level; in grants-funded programs, and in developmental and non-developmental classrooms. She focuses on students’ reading, writing and literature skills and has taught study strategies, first-year seminars, critical/creative thinking, children’s literature and adolescent literature. She is visiting faculty at the world-renowned Kellogg Institute for Developmental Educators, and is a fellow of the American Council of Developmental Education Associations (ACDEA), the highest honor in the field.
