Families & Literacy welcomes 2 new faces to help scale programming

Tammi Bingham, Lisa Shockley join program that serves the Hill Country.

Misty Kohte, the executive director at Families & Literacy, Inc., announced two new staff members as the programs grow across the Hill Country.

Tammi Bingham has been named the operations coordinator and Lisa Shockley as the English as a second-language coordinator.

Bingham, a native of Kerrville, graduated from Tivy High School before earning undergraduate and graduate degrees at Schreiner University. She has also worked at Schreiner University.

"(Bingham) is known in town for her work ethic and as a member of various boards," Kothe said in a news release. "She will make a difference in our program operations immediately. I am excited to see the contributions she makes to the program over time."

Shockley, a resident of Fredericksburg, is a University of Oklahoma graduate, where she also earned a graduate degree in French. Shockley lived in Paris for two years until she returned to Oklahoma to teach. In 2011, Shockley moved to Austin, Texas, where she started working for Austin ISD teaching ESL (English as a Second Language). Later, she opened Caswell Language School, teaching multiple languages there.

"(Shockley's) skills in communicating, coupled with her experience in teaching and learning foreign languages, will be invaluable to Families & Literacy."
