Scenes From Fall Super Saturday Handiwork

The fall session of Lewiston Adult Education's Super Saturday had an unofficial theme of showing off handiwork. Teachers guided students when it came to first aid and using henna.

Here are some pictures of work throughout the day:

Trimmer Wins Adult Education Teacher Of Year Award

 

 

          A lawyer who changed careers to teach adult education has picked up a top award.

            The Maine Adult Education Association presented Jessica Trimmer with its teacher of the year award on June 22 during its annual conference held at the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus.

            Trimmer joined Lewiston Adult Education in 2006 after working as a lawyer for four years. Tutoring international students at the University of Southern Maine as a University of Maine School of Law student got her interested in teaching. Trimmer has taught Adult Basic Education, English Speakers of Other Languages and citizenship classes in addition to assisting inmates at the Androscoggin County Jail get their high school equivalency.

            She credited her fellow teachers at the Adult Learning Center with helping her when she first started and for their continued support. Trimmer, who teaches intermediate English, said her students’ work ethic impresses her and how some may know from six to eight different languages.

             A comment she heard in class from a student talking about community got her thinking about the overall mission she has.

             “It struck me because the learning center is a place where we come in from different communities and become one,”she said.
