What I do
Mary has been married to her husband, Albert, for 32 years. They have two daughters, Celina and Sarah. Mary and Albert currently live in Springvale, Maine where they are landlords. In her free time, Mary enjoys spending time with her husband kayaking, riding bicycles, and taking long walks together. During the summer months, Mary and Albert enjoy spending time on their small motor boat with family and friends on nearby lakes. This past summer, they joined a small group of friends every Wednesday night for a few hours of kayaking on Mousam Lake. Good friends and family are very important to Mary.
Mary started working at Loranger Memorial School six years ago as a Special Education Teacher in seventh grade. She originally worked as a resource room teacher helping students in all academic areas and also taught Math and Language Arts in the resource room during her first years. Over the past two years, Mary’s role has focused on reading instruction especially in the area of decoding for grades 3-8. Mary is presently working towards her Masters in Literacy at USM along with completing requirements for her Maine Certification as a Literacy Specialist.
Mary originally received her BS degree through Westbrook College in Portland, ME. Mary’s journey in the classroom began as a volunteer in both of her daughters’ classrooms which quickly progressed to substitute teaching. She began working as an Educational Technician III in the Special Education programs for grades K-3 in Sanford, Maine. As a result of her love of teaching, Mary entered the ETEP program at USM where she earned her Master of Science in Education degree in May, 2011.
