Meet Our New Coordinator - Elise!!!

September 2012

Have you heard!? We have a new person to welcome to our TLC family! Her name is Elise and she is our new TLC Coordinator! The TLC teachers were lucky enough to meet her over skype during our teacher retreat in late August, but we had a special "polyberg" meeting in mid-September so all the students could lay their eyes on our new coordinator!


All of the TLC schools were present for our polyberg date! Our SIX island schools that are involved in the TLC this year are the Ashley Bryan School on Islesford, Cliff, Frenchboro, Isle au Haut, Matinicus, and Monhegan! Elise, Ruth, and Hanna from the Island Institute joined us as well!


Here she is in all her glory! Meet Elise! We think she is pretty cool!

 

Each of the schools got a chance to introduce themselves to Elise and tell a little bit about themselves! Here is the Frenchboro gang saying hi!

 

And here is the good looking Cliff Island crew!

 

And the Matinicus School! I miss them already.

 

The Ashley Bryan School had two of their newly trained student leaders introduce their school! Awesome!

 

Here is the Isle au Haut group saying hello!

 

And the super cute Monhegan School live and in person!

 

After the kids all got a chance to introduce themselves we played "Two Truths and a Lie" with Elise. From that game we learned that she has run FIVE marathons, has TWO pugs, and has NOT jumped out of an airplane! The kids also got a chance to ask her some questions which ranged from "How are you going to help the TLC?" "What did you do for work before this job?" and "How old ARE you?" 

Elise told the kids how her job will involve planning the TLC field trips, helping to coordinate such activities as book groups and other virtual collaboration, and she really wants to participate in Student Council and find out new ways she can help the TLC from the students! 

AWESOME!

 

We feel very fortunate to have such a smart, fun, energetic, and easy-going lady on our TLC team!

So welcome Elise! We know you are going to fit right in! Enjoy the TLC ride. It's a mighty good one.

Yay Elise! Welcome, welcome! We're very happy about the pubs (the TLC loves teacher DOGS), excited about the inspiring marathon running and sooo relieved we don't have to worry about keeping track of you jumping out of pesky planes!
