Representative Victoria P. Kornfield
Rep. Victoria Kornfield is serving her second term in the Maine House of Representatives. She is House chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs and was the House chair of the Task Force to EndStudent Hunger in Maine. A lifelong educator, she taught for 37 years, 30 of those at Bangor High School. She has a master’s degree in teaching and a certificate of advanced study in educational administration.
Kornfield has traveled extensively, including a trip around the world by ship. She has been out with Maine game wardens to tag bears in their winter dens and on the red carpet at the Academy Awards. She feels extremely lucky to retire from a profession she loved and then to immediately begin a new career that she finds very interesting and stimulating.
She has two daughters, three grandchildren and a husband who is a professor at the University of Maine.
