Happy Retirement

June 15, 2016

Maine is fortunate!

We know that what a teacher offers can have an enormous impact on students development day to day AND over their lifetime. As educators retire at the close of another school year, 2015-16, I know that you will join me in THANKING them for their years of service and dedication to students across the state. Maine appreciates the commitment of the following educators and wish you well and many healthy years of laughter!
