Why I Became a Teacher

I am a 13-year secondary-level educator, and relish every opportunity to practice critical pedagogy, inspire critical thinking, expand creative and empathic capacity, and enlarge the intellectual universes of young learners everywhere! 

The Online School Experience at Maine Connections Academy

I believe that Maine Connections Academy fulfils a critically important role within the larger Maine public education system, and it is so rewarding serving students from across all 16 counties! We put our students in the driver's seat of their education! Our LiveLesson room experiences are student-centered, highly participatory, seamless, and user-friendly.


As an avid traveler and adventure-seeker, I’ve journeyed to over 60 countries across five continents, and have sailed across both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. When not teaching or off on global adventures, I enjoy reading, gourmet cooking and catching up on local, national, and international news.

"If you are seeking a rigorous, engaging, and personalized virtual learning experience for your child, then Maine Connections Academy is the place for you!"
