As Maine prepares to celebrate its bicentennial, this course will explore the role that women played in that history. Maine’s Remarkable Women (2016) will serve as our text but we’ll invite participants to find unknown or little known women who could easily have been included. Guest speakers and field trips are possible. This class will be participatory with class members encouraged to present a remarkable Maine woman. Let’s learn and share together about herstory in Maine. Classroom
Susan O’Halloran grew up in the White Mountains of NH, living winters in the paper mill town of Berlin and idyllic summers at Moose Brook State Park in Gorham. After college she began her career teaching Special Education at the elementary school level in NH as well as in Hawaii. Following marriage and the arrival of children, she served as a certified childbirth educator for a dozen years….perhaps the most joyful, rewarding teaching job a person could ever have.
Upon moving to Maine Sue expanded her experience in working with families by completing a two year program in Family Systems. She has facilitated women’s support groups and a wide variety of state sponsored initiatives including a decade of helping Maine communities address the prevention and/or aftermath management of Youth Suicide.
Linda Williams taught 21½ years. She has a BA in History and a MA in Education from University of Michigan. In Maine, Linda worked extensively with the Office of Substance Abuse, the Maine Youth Suicide Prevention Program, and Somerset County Hospice as Executive Director. Linda’s classes are always well-received and highly rated.
