About Us

Maine ASCD is a State Affiliate of ASCD, sharing its mission to empower educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching, and leadership so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. Comprising 114,000 members—superintendents, principals, teachers, and advocates from nearly 130 countries—the ASCD community includes 64 affiliate organizations.

ASCD's diverse, nonpartisan membership is our greatest strength, projecting a powerful, unified voice to decision makers around the world.

From the first day of a teacher preparation program to the last day on the job, Maine ASCD, like its parent organization, supports educators regardless of their years of service, positions, or titles. We're committed to helping educators enhance their practice by providing high-quality, research-based resources and support they can trust.

Educators everywhere have a vision to change the world—one child at a time. It's the ASCD vision, too. Supporting the Whole Child is at the core of our mission.
