Class of 2019 Winter 2022 Class Note

Hello, Class of 2019 alumni! I saw the need for a class correspondent and thought I would try it. Let me introduce myself.
My name is Cindy Lambert (also 96G). My history with UMaine goes way back. I was a TA in the zoology department during my first graduate degree experience at UMaine and earned an MEd in science education. After many years teaching middle school science and math at Trenton Elementary School, I went back to UMaine to get an MEd in instructional technology. Now, I am a technology integrator at Mount Desert Elementary School in Northeast Harbor. I return to campus often with my students and to visit. I have two Black Bears of my own! My son, Matthew, graduated in
2020 with a civil engineering degree. My younger son, Noah, is in the 2025 class for computer engineering. I live in Bar Harbor with my husband, Jim.
