Nelly Moreno Shenk

Programs Manager,

Nelly was born in El Salvador, came to the United States in 2002, and naturalized as a U.S. citizen in 2006. She is married and has two grown children, Daniel and Sara. She has a degree in economics and an MBA from El Salvador. Nelly has been working for Skyline Literacy since 2008. She has non-profit experience in her country as well as the United States. Nelly learned English when she came to this country as an adult, so she knows that learning another language in adulthood is difficult -- but achievable if you have the motivation! Her family has been her biggest motivation. She loves learning about different cultures, and trying new food, too!


Barbie Spitz

Literacy Programs Coordinator & Tutor Manager,

Barbie started as a volunteer English Language (ELL) tutor with Skyline Literacy in 2009, and joined staff in 2011. She graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Sociology and speaks Spanish. When she moved to Philadelphia in 2013 to pursue another career, she realized she was more passionate about adult education than any other field, and came back to Skyline Literacy in 2015. She's dedicated to helping others, being involved in her community, and of course, teaching!
