Second Grade

Elaine Breton - - I grew up in Waterville and attended the Waterville Public Schools. It was a positive and enriching experience and that's why I decided that teaching in Waterville was exactly what I wanted as a professional educator. I attended the University of Maine at Orono for the completion of my Bachelor's Degree in Child Development and my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I have a second Master's Degree in Literacy from New England College. I began in Waterville as a Title 1 Technician in the area of Literacy and have taught in several grades including first, second, multiage and looping settings. I have been a member of the Waterville teaching staff for over 23 years and have enjoyed it more each year. I reside in Waterville with my husband Jeff and son Nathan. We enjoy hiking, water sports and traveling as a family. My interests include cooking, shopping, reading and long peaceful walks in our neighborhood.
