Honored for her excellence
Blue Hill Consolidated School science teacher Nell Herrmann was named Hancock County Teacher of the Year on May 9 in Augusta. While finalists for Maine Teacher of the Year will be drawn from the pool of county awardees, Herrmann has withdrawn herself from consideration as she is taking a leave of absence for the 2019-20 school year to teach at a science magnet school in the Bahamas.
