Dr. Foehl’s responsibilities include leadership in the area of literacy, work with the nonpublic schools program, continuing professional education programs, comprehensive school planning, various state initiatives, and other services related to curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
Dr. Foehl began her educational career as a teacher’s assistant in a residential treatment facility.
