Mainiacs is a revered term, only given to those who are 5th generation (or more) born in Maine. If you were born in Maine but you are 1st - 4th generation, you're a Mainer. Everyone else is just "a person from away". I came to Maine for "just one semester," but now I'm "tenure track" which means I'm here to stay for a while. As I was in those first few months, I am very excited about this adventure and the chance to meet the great people of Maine.

I'm on the special education search committee that's looking for a new professor to come to UMF to take over the spot that will be available in fall 2011

Once upon a time, there was a very special young lady who had a very cool and creative mom and a talented dad.
