RSU 24 Educator Named Adult Education Director of the Year

by Jacqueline Weaver, Reporter The Ellsworth American

SULLIVAN — Though she has been in her director’s position less than two years, Ander Thébaud already has achieved recognition in the field of adult education.

Thébaud, who directs the adult education program for Regional School Unit 24, was named Adult Education Director of the Year at the annual conference of the Maine Adult Education Association in June.

“Though she is new to the position, Ander Thébaud could not be more deserving of this award,” according to Laura Bryant, an advisor and math teacher in the department who nominated Thébaud. “Since taking the reins of the post two years ago, she has led our program through significant restructuring with a balance of continuity and fresh ideas.”

Bryant, whose comments were read at the awards ceremony in Dover Foxcroft, said Thébaud’s focus on contextualized learning “helps all of us engage students at a deeper level.”

“She has a wealth of knowledge surrounding adult education and current developments in education in general and always brings that learning into our programs,” Bryant said.

“Ander understands the value of feedback,” Bryant said. “She is in frequent contact with partners at the district and state level as well as in the community. She involves both students and staff in evaluations of programs and uses input to improve outcomes.”

“Students, staff and programs are each strengthened by Ander’s support and leadership,” said Bryant. “She is truly outstanding.”

Thébaud has been director of the RSU’s adult education program since November 2014, but has been with the program since 2010.

She has also served as assistant director of admissions, assistant director of student services and then director of student services at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor.

Thébaud then decided on a new path, carpentry. She was a carpenter on Mount Desert Island for seven years and, at the same time, was an owner and guide of Acadia Outdoor Guide Service, also on MDI.

After several years, Thébaud returned to academia as director of residential life at George Stevens Academy in Blue Hill, where she designed, administered and assessed the international student residential life program.

She then joined RSU 24 as coordinator of adult education academic programs while serving as a coordinator of the Pathways alternative education program at Sumner Memorial High School.
