On Saturday night in Bangor educators from across the state were recognized as county teachers of the year and one who represents Maine teachers as the state teacher of the year. The event is always fun but more importantly, a clear reminder of the importance of celebrating our teaching profession. Almost every year since I started attending the event in 1995 there has been an art or music teacher as one of the nominees. This year is no exception. Susan Beaulier is a PreK-12 art teacher extraordinaire at the Ashland School and teaches visual art. Sue is the 2015 Aroostook County teacher of the year and we at the Maine Arts Leadership Initiative (MALI) are pretty darn proud since she has been a Teacher Leader with MALI for 3 years!

Joining the celebration on Saturday was Kate Smith who is the 2014 York County Teacher of the Year. Kate continually uses her voice in a positive way at the local, regional, and statewide level. (https://meartsed.wordpress.com/2015/11/12/find-your-voice/) Sue, Kate, and I had the opportunity t0 have a photo taken Senator Susan Collins. And, Kate took a few moments to speak with the Senator about MALI. A grand event was had by all who attended!
