Principal, Southport Central School
It has been a pleasure to join the Southport Central School Staff in July of 2012. I started my career as a teacher in a two room school in Topsfield, Maine. I taught K-3 for two years. I loved teaching a variety of grade level and for the next eight years taught students from grades K-8. As I was teaching I enrolled at UMaine to complete a Master's Degree in Special Education and CAS Degree in Educational Administration. I was hired as a teaching/principal in Danforth, East Grand Elementary School. From there I was hired in Woodland to be their Special Education Director and became Principal of Woodland Elementary in 1992. I have served as an educational leader in different roles for 27 of my 37 years in education. Each and every job I have had has been special and I have worked with wonderful staff, students and parents. I now work as a teaching principal and find this a very rewarding and challenging.
