Marshwood Great Works School
I began my career with MSAD 35 in September 1977, as a Home Economics (now
Family and Consumer Sciences)teacher at Marshwood High School, a position I
held for 18 years. While teaching at MHS, I attended the University of
Southern Maine, where I earned a Masters Degree in education, with a school
counseling concentration. I then made the switch to elementary guidance. I
worked at Central School for three years before joining the staff at MGWS.
I enjoy traveling and so far, Paris is my favorite city to visit.
I also have a fondness (understatement!) for dogs, especially terriers. I
have a West Highland Terrier, Gordie, and a Cairn Terrier/Yorkie mix, Cooper.
The goals of the MGWS Guidance Department are:
1. To help raise student aspirations
2. To help students reach their full potential and to prepare them to
become tomorrow's adults
a. work with students in the social/emotional domain
b. work with students in the career domain
c. work with students in the academic domain, when needed
3. To provide information and appropriate referral services to parents
