Why Teach?

Teachers Empower 

If you like a challenge and the daily satisfaction of knowing that what you are doing really matters, teaching may be a good fit for you. As a teacher, you will work hard while building skills to connect with each learner in ways that they will remember what they learned and who the teacher was. 

Kern Kelley is one of those teachers, Learn more about the empowering roles his students play by clicking on the Regional School Unit 19  Learning Design Lab video to the right. 

Teachers Inspire 

Maine's schools and school administrative units are as unique as Maine's geography. Within each school, teachers bring their own unique style and personality to the art and science of teaching. Meet some of Maine's talented teachers by following the link to the #LoveTeaching2022Campaign videos. 

Talented, compassionate teachers can make lasting impressions on students in big and small ways. Click on the video below, to hear Emily Pauk recite an original poem about one of her teachers.
