Hello,  I'm Michelle!  I'm the new Administrative Assistant here at Hiawatha.  

Throughout my life I've been lucky to have jobs that I could help others. For 14 years, I owned and operated a resale shop, Trading Post for little folks.  I got to know many wonderful  families, helping them recycle and save money.

My next adventure was as a teller at TD Bank in Essex Center where I enjoyed helping my community with their banking needs.

I love spending time with my family.  Our daughter is currently teaching English in an elementary school in Takasaki Japan.  We're looking forward to visiting her there in May.  Our son is a sophomore at UMaine in Orono studying Marine Biology and playing rugby.

I love a good book, watching a movie, listening to music, going for walks and travel.  I volunteer at the Flynn to enjoy my love of theater!

I'm so excited to be a part of this wonderful school and community!  I'm looking forward to helping you!
