Welcome to Our Newest Member!

     Wendy Moreau, special education director in SAD36, has agreed to join us on our literacy and technology committee.  Wendy graduated from Michigan University in 1981 (in special ed) and then moved to Maine.  She married a local man and left teaching to raise a family.  In 1993 she returned to work in SAD 36.  During this time she received her Masters in Special Education and her CAS in educational leadership from USM.  She has been the director of Special Education in SAD36 for the last 6 years.
      Wendy's philosophy is quite simple: Students come first and teachers must do whatever it takes.  Within the context of today's education she sees her role as one of a problem solver and researcher - analyzing students' needs, finding ways to support them, and then coming up with a plan to get resources and students together - including working with students herself.
     We are delighted to have her expertise.  Her intent will be to explore technology as a resource to find a way to assist youngsters in need of special services.  She is an invaluable resource  and we are delighted to have her on the team.
