Alumni Success Stories
"UMaine has caring and dedicated professors who make good role models for quality teaching. I was a lost soul that found direction and guidance at UMaine. When I work with student teachers from other schools, including Columbia University’s Teachers College, they do not feel nearly as prepared as I did after being trained at UMaine."
Student Success Stories
For future educators, student-teaching before graduation is hardly a new idea. But for undergraduates at UMaine, it’s anything but the same-old, same-old.
