Ms. Emily Bilodeau can be described in many ways: witty, boisterous, and a tad bit crazy sometimes, but a great Creative Writing and Movie Criticism teacher nonetheless. But, of course, she didn’t start out as a teacher. This Greene native attended the University of Maine at Farmington to get her degree in Secondary Education: English. At first, she saw teaching as a guaranteed way for a bookworm to make a living, but the more she prepared and did this job, the more she loved it. Also, she was influenced by her mother who had had a teaching certificate, but gave up her career to have little Emily.

Before coming to Lewiston High School, Ms. Bilodeau taught Honors and AP classes in English and Global Studies at Edward Little. Although there is always a rivalry between the Twin Cities, she was glad that it didn’t influence her welcome at Lewiston. There are actually a lot of teachers who are connected in some way to EL, so that was always a conversation starter.

When she arrived at LHS, two aspects that influenced her positive attitude toward this new setting that she is now settling into were the other teachers’ kindness and helpfulness and finally getting to teach Creative Writing. She has also been always impressed by all the resources that students have available to them at LHS.

But Ms. Bilodeau isn’t only a teacher. She is a nature fanatic. “I am a tomboy, all the way. It almost hurts for me to be inside on nice days.” I’m sure we’ll all be saying that when June comes around, Ms. Bilodeau!
