AP Psychology just finished their Senses Debate where they had to defend why their sense was the most important. Each presentation had to describe their sense, how the sense travels to the brain, and an experiment to show the sense in action. The sense experiment captured in these pictures was the sense of touch where students with limited information had to guess what they were touching. Some pictures are better than others, but thought I would pass them along all the same! #gomustangs

Marine Biology kiddos had a blast learning about the many career options in the field of Marine Science at the DMR in Boothbay Harbor. They measured, weighed and examined sea urchins, learned about whale entanglement/Right whale conservation, scallop and lobster research and regulations, observed the facilities wet lab, met with a Marine Patrol officer, discussed bio toxins and water quality surrounding the shellfish industry, and collected their own phytoplankton samples to bring back and share with the rest of the class! Overall, an extremely informative, engaging and wonderful field trip!

MHS is excited to welcome Jill Herrick as a new social studies teacher! Mrs. Herrick previously worked at the Maine Girls' Academy, previously Catherine McAuley High School. She holds degrees in History, Theology, and Secondary Education! Mrs. Herrick became an educator because seeing teachers who loved what they did inspired her.

As for hobbies, he coaches middle school wrestling and listening to podcasts. Some fun facts are that Mr. Nadeau had a mullet until 5th grade and he can hold his breath for over 19 seconds.

Hattie graduated from the University of Maine with a degree in Art Education and a second degree in Studio Art, with an interest and many credit hours invested in biology. She’s a printmaker, painter, and ceramicist, and she is largely inspired by the natural sciences. The art room was always a safe and fun place to be while she was in school, and she hopes she can provide that for her students. She loves running, the ocean, and making things! She likes leaving her comfort zone and doing things that scare her, like skydiving and teaching high school... her next adventure is stand up comedy!

MHS is excited to welcome Andrew French as a new guidance counselor! Mr. French has a Masters in Education in School Counseling from UMASS Boston, MS in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University, and a BA in English from the University of Vermont. In his spare time, Mr. French enjoys playing golf, softball, racquetball, and ping-pong. He is a big foodie and he started to write a sci-fi thriller novel a couple of years ago, which he intends on finishing one day. Mr. French is also a fan of the Celtics, Patriots, and the Red Sox. Mr. French got into education because he wanted to do something more meaningful. He did not have a great counseling experience in high school and because of this he wants to be the high school counselor he never had! Thanks for joining our team!

MHS is excited to welcome Daniel Laciano as a new instrumental teacher! Prior to Massabesic HS, he taught in the public schools of Ohio as a high school and middle school band director. He took some time off from teaching to explore other interests, but eventually realized teaching was where he was meant to be. Mr. Laciano received a Bachelor of Music in Education from Miami University (Ohio) on a trumpet performance scholarship. He went into education because he wanted to be connected to music and he needed a job. It turns out that teaching ended up being the best choice he could have made. No other job has given Mr. Laciano the joy he gets from watching students grow and succeed. Hobbies include: Woodworking, Cooking, Gardening, Foraging, Hiking, Playing trumpet and throwing ball to his dog. Fun fact: He lived without indoor plumbing for 3 years...on purpose, while homesteading.

He has a BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing from Emerson College and a Masters of Education from Lesley University. Mr. Villmore went into education to help students understand the power of stories and the power that comes from telling their own. He wanted to help them use words to empower themselves. When he’s not teaching Mr. Villmore enjoys baseball, chess, reading, and hiking. A few fun facts are that his favorite book is “All Quiet on the Western Front” and that he’d rather watch curling than basketball. Thanks for joining our team!
