Maureen Devlin @lookforsun

As the oldest child of six and one of a very large and loving extended family, Maureen always had a passion for working with young children. So after a liberal arts education at The College of the Holy Cross where she followed her dad's advice to "study whatever you want," Maureen worked for a few years in the marketing department in a multidisciplinary design firm, and then went on to get her master's degree and teaching credentials at Boston University. Soon after, Maureen became an elementary school teacher in Wayland, Massachusetts and has taught several grades throughout her 30-year tenure in the district. In addition to teaching, Maureen enjoys reading, researching, writing, presenting, project work, and serving on committees related to education development and innovation. She is passionate about moving schools in the direction of serving EVERY child with strength, love, and a top-notch education. And as a mom of three wonderful sons, she's had some good homeschooling to reach her goals as well.
