We are so excited to welcome Caroline Moore as our new sixth grade science teacher on the Birch Island team! Caroline graduated from Bowdoin College with a B.A. in Biology and her teaching certification in life science. Caroline has taught students in a variety of settings, including the classroom, national park, school garden, and even meeting with students on ferries. For several years, Caroline worked with students from Maine's islands as they navigated the college process. Most recently, she taught middle school math and science in Lincolnville. In her free time, Caroline loves exploring outside in any and all ways, and is looking forward to exploring new trails and swimming spots in the Brunswick area.
