Five Town CSD Adult and Community Education announces teacher Heidi Nolan has won a Maine Adult Education Association Outstanding Teacher of the Year award at the annual Maine Adult Education Association Conference held at Colby College in June.

Nolan has been tutoring at Five Town CSD’s Adult Learning Center for nine years. She is the teacher for Literacy tutoring, HiSET (formerly GED) preparation, College Transitions tutoring and advising, and for ESOL tutoring. Last year she designed and taught the Math Boot Camp programs, which she teaches at University College at Rockland to serve students in need of math help. In addition, this year Nolan started tutoring and advising people at the homeless shelter in Rockport, which serves the homeless in Knox, Lincoln and Waldo counties. Her programs are all open enrollment, meaning people can join and attend when they are able to, with the exception of Math Boot Camp.

The Maine Adult Education Association oversees 84 adult education centers in the state, and chooses just two outstanding teachers for this award from the many nominees who have all been teaching over five years.

Five Town CSD Adult and Community Education is based at Camden Hills Regional High School, 25 Keelson Dr., Rockport. The Adult Learning Center is located at 7 Lions Lane in Camden, in the superintendent’s office building near the middle school.
