    Considering the office you are running for, what do you feel are the three most pressing issues (350 words or less): 1. The pandemic has resulted in a high need for more Social Emotional Learning. 2. Our Children need a safe environment that is conducive to their learning. 3. Staff shortages in education, health care, and law enforcement

    Any other thoughts on why you are running or what you can bring to the office? (150 words or less): What can I bring to the office? Well, let me see. My experience as a substitute teacher for about 9 years, right here in Wiscasset. My 24 years of experience as an Ed. Tech. and still a teacher in Portland.
