Presumpscot Elementary School teacher Stevi-Lynn Nichols has been selected as one of Maine's top teachers through the Unum Teachers' Hall of Fame - Starting 9 program.

Each year, Unum recognizes 9 educators who have gone above and beyond in their field and exemplify hard work and dedication. The teachers are nominated by principals, colleagues and parents. 

Each gets a $500 check, eight tickets to the Portland Sea Dogs June 21 game in the picnic area, all-you-can-eat BBQ for two hours, a personalized Sea Dogs' uniform top and more.  They also are recognized in a special ceremony and have the opportunity to throw out one of the ceremonial first pitches.

Unum and the Sea Dogs recognize teachers each year because “today's educators are investing their time in developing our leaders for tomorrow. Through education, children gain the skills & values necessary to become strong leaders in our communities. Maine's future depends on how well we prepare these students for success in college, career and citizenship.”
