What I do

Catherine began working in RSU 23 in October 2010 as a speech therapist at Old Orchard Beach High School, Saco Middle School, and Thorton Academy. During this school year, she was drawn to teaching at the beach. In September of 2011, Catherine fulfilled her dream of becoming a special education teacher in Room 106. Since then, her days have been filled with teaching life skills, academics and learning strategies to high school students.

After graduation, Catherine attended the University of Maine at Farmington and earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Correction in 1990.
