AUGUSTA, Maine — Education Commissioner Stephen Bowen will visit schools in the Kennebec Valley on Tuesday, May 10, as part of his statewide listening tour.

He’ll start with a morning meeting with superintendents in Oakland before he visits Oakland’s Williams Elementary School. At Williams, he’ll spend time in the classroom of Shelly Moody, Maine’s 2011 Teacher of the Year.

Bowen then will visit Readfield Elementary School, where he’ll learn about the school’s Response to Intervention program.

Bowen will end the day with an evening forum at Messalonskee Middle School in Oakland to hear from parents, teachers and others interested in sharing ideas about improving education and the work of the Department of Education.
