I am Donna Longley. I am currently a 3rd grade teacher here at Wells Elementary School. I have been teaching here since 1989. I have had many positions here at WES. When I started I was a self contained Special Needs teacher. I have since been a 2nd grade teacher for 1 year, a graded 3rd grade teacher, a looping 3-4 teacher, a gr 4 teacher and a math content teacher in 4th grade. I have taught in Mass., California and Maine. 

I have lived in Maine now for 29 years where I have raised my 3 grown children. I have 2 girls and a boy. I also have a grandson who is 10. 

I grew up in Mass. with 8 brothers and sisters. My father was a high school teacher and then went on to be a high school principal. My mother was a PE teacher but after starting a family stayed home and raised us.


I am Kathy Hodge. I am an intern  in the Extended Teacher Education Program at USM studying for my certification in teaching students in grades K-8. I live in Kennebunk with my husband and two children, ages 10 and 13. 

I am a life-long Mainer and love all things outdoors! When I'm not busy with school I enjoy hiking, biking, and exploring our wonderful state and all its hidden treasures. I especially enjoy walking on the beach with my family and studying tide pools. We live in such an amazing part of the country!

Prior to returning to college I was owner and operator of Busy Hands Family Child Care in Lebanon, ME. I have 20 years of experience working with children at the preschool level and am very excited about sharing my excitement for learning with school-aged children.
