Professional Experience: I started my professional career 25+ years ago at the Lamoine Corner Nursery School teaching 3 to 5 year olds. In 1987, I then began teaching here at the Lamoine Consolidated School, first as an ed. tech and Title 1 reading and math tutor before taking on the role of classroom teacher. Initially, I taught Kindergarten and then moved on to teaching 2nd Grade. For many years now, I have been a 1st-2nd Grade Looping Classroom Teacher.
Educational Experience: I received my undergraduate degree in Education from the University of Maine. I continued my graduate work at UMO as well, attaining a Masters in Literacy Education and an Individually Designed Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in Literacy Education and Educational Leadership.
