Camden-Rockport Elementary principal named
Rockport — The MSAD 28 Board of Directors recently hired Janet Anderson as the next principal for Camden-Rockport Elementary School. Anderson will begin her new duties July 1.
She replaces Theresa Lash who was in that position for three years.
A National Board Certified teacher, Literacy Specialist and certified Literacy Coach, Anderson has worked in education for almost 17 years. Her passion for literacy and student learning are at the heart of her educational beliefs.
Anderson graduated from St. Lawrence University, where she met her husband and soon found herself living in Maine. She quickly fell in love with the people, pace and beauty of the state and has considered it home for most of her life.
During her career, she has taught gifted and talented students; third-, fourth- and fifth-graders; and beginning readers who had difficulties learning to read. During the last eight years, Anderson has supported teachers as a literacy coach and instructional leader who worked to manage continuous improvement at Williams-Cone Elementary School in Topsham and most recently at Mabel I. Wilson School in Cumberland.
