Professional Profile

Lynn University is not just a place that offers higher education; it is a community amongst the faculty, staff and students. It is home to students from over 80 countries, who are able to learn and grow from each other. As well, the student body and faculty ignite passion in each other through the many ways they give back to the community at large with various charity works and helping those in need. The students at Lynn University truly represent what it means to be global life-long learners and outstanding citizens of the 21st century. This, and so much more, is what makes me enjoy being a part of the Lynn family.

Priscilla A. Boerger began her career in the public school sector as an elementary school teacher in Miami, Florida. During that time she was a lead teacher and the secretary for her school’s ESSAC committee. She also trained teachers on classroom management strategies, held parent workshops, and was involved with the school’s PTA.   Dr. Boerger joined Lynn University eight years ago as an adjunct professor and is now starting her seventh year serving the Ross College of Education.  She is the K-6 Elementary Education program coordinator and the Director of Clinical Experiences. She works with various organizations in the state of Florida; specifically the State of Florida Department of Education and as a board member of Florida Association of Teacher Educators. As well, she works closely with several departments within the School District of Palm Beach County. Boerger has a great passion for two research topics: bullying and the whole child. She has made several presentations at various conferences, at both the state and national level, as an invited panel guest and with colleagues. Dr. Boerger also coordinates the Masters in Educational Leadership program.
