The Fellows will work with Maine Department of Education staff to support the state’s educators in cross-cutting, interdisciplinary concepts of civics, STEAM, and humanities.

“Taking on this new position offers so many opportunities to engage with exactly what I love about teaching — meeting other educators, making connections with community partners, and celebrating community centered student learning. I truly believe that building strong communities and educating engaged citizens is the core mission of schools, and that civic learning happens in every grade and every content area,” said Graham.

The Fellows will provide educators across Maine with weekly updates on resources and materials, host monthly professional learning opportunities, and maintain webpages with informative content.
