Do you know a teacher that you would nominate for the Patience Norman Prize?  Patience W. Norman was a history teacher with a fine, inquisitive mind who believed her students were capable of academic excellence.  Ms. Norman required her students to work hard and challenged them to surpass her and their own expectations.  The Norman Prize for Teacher Excellence has been established at the Maine Community Foundation to recognize teachers in MSAD 52 who emulate her educational philosophy.


The Patience W. Norman Prize for Teacher Excellence is awarded to a deserving teacher in MSAD 52 annually.  Candidates for the prize must be nominated and have a demonstrated commitment to MSAD 52 as evidenced by a minimum five-year tenure.  Teachers should also demonstrate one or more of the following qualities: unusual impact and effectiveness in the classroom; commitment to students, including responsibility and concern for academic progress; creativity and innovation in teaching; and leadership that provides a positive model for students.  The award recipient receives a $5,000.00 prize.


Nomination packets are attached here and are available at school offices.  Completed packets should be returned to the MSAD 52 District Office, 486 Turner Center Road, Turner, ME  04282 by Friday, October 19, 2018.

MSAD 52 participated in a very successful energy performance project with Siemens.  The way an energy performance project works is that improvements are made to our school buildings, Siemens guarantees, measures and verifies our energy savings, and the District uses the energy savings to pay for the upgrades to our schools.  It is a win-win situation for our District.  Check out this link for more information about the project and the savings!
