Welcome Meghan Connelly!

METS is happy to welcome Meghan Connelly as the new advisor to the Lake Region schools! Meghan has been helping out in the schools this summer, so if you see her, say hello!

I am very thrilled to be the new METS Advisor in Lake Region High School and Middle School!

I graduated from the University of Maine in 2015 with my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, and again this past May with my Master’s Degree in Student Development in Higher Education. For the past two years, I have been an Academic Advisor for the College of Education and Human Development, where I helped students through course selection, program requirements, and preparation for teacher certification upon graduation. During this time, I taught college success courses for first-year students, guiding them through the transition from high school to college. In addition, I was an academic mentor for students-athletes, where I taught intervention strategies such as successful study skills, organizational habits, and time management techniques.

I have a passion working with students of all ages and from all backgrounds, providing them with academic, career, and educational advising and support, and I look forward to beginning this journey on the METS Team!”

Welcome Andrew Henry!

METS is thrilled to announce the hiring of Andrew Henry, who will be our Advisor in the Central, Nokomis, and Searsport schools. Andrew will be in schools soon, but until then, here is a small blurb he wrote to introduce himself:

I graduated from the University of Southern Maine in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education, and from Husson University in 2014 after completing the Secondary Pathways Teaching Certification Program. In addition, I taught high school English in the Academics program at Hancock County Technical Center from 2014 to 2016. My experiences working with many potential first-generation college students led me to seek out opportunities in the world of college-access programs like TRIO. One of my professional goals has been to help students find success in a post-secondary educational environment, and I’m thrilled to start doing that as a METS Advisor.
