Congratulations to Maine's recently announced PAEMST for Middle and High School Mathematics. He currently teaches ninth through 12th graders at Camden Hills Regional High School. We are grateful to William O'Brien for making Maine his home to practice the art and science of teaching.
"He has been called the 'pied piper of mathematics' for his ability to encourage large numbers of students to extend themselves mathematically. Whether shepherding 45 eager “mathletes” on the math team, or convincing an art student to take AP Calculus, he makes mathematics accessible, yet challenging. After school, his classroom is often filled with students working and discussing math -- even on a Friday afternoon!"
