Zucker has been a member of the DWP (formerly, the Digital Literacies Collaborative) since 2014 and serves as a NWP Teacher Consultant (TC), providing professional development through school partnerships. In her keynote, Zucker drew from her experience as a high school and college educator, teacher-writer, and editor of New Jersey English Journal.
Attendees were welcomed by DWP Director Dr. Kristen Turner. The event featured a panel of DWP Teacher Consultants, Shannon Faulkner, Garrett Van Curen, and Annie Yon, whose work had been recently published in the 2022 issue of New Jersey English Journal.
