LIBRARY INFORMATION INTEGRATOR
Corinne Altham is the Library Information Integrator at both Frank I. Brown and Dora L. Small Elementary Schools. This is her eighth year managing two amazing libraries as part of South Portland School Department's InfoTech Team. She has a Master of Science in Education with a focus on instructional technology. Mrs. Altham plans to complete her Master of Library Science during the 2021-2022 school year.
Mrs. Altham was born in Brockton, Massachusetts in 1976. Her father was a mechanic and her mom was a school bus driver. She lives in Gorham, Maine with her husband Richard, daughter Julia, son Jackson and a very naughty rescue dog named Dixie. She loves to garden, cook, play music and spend time with people.
LIBRARY ED TECH
Anna Cloutier joined the teaching staff in South Portland in 1988 and has worked at different schools; Skillin, Brown, and for the past 17 years, the “new” Small School. She has taught all the elementary grades K-5. Last June, she retired from full time teaching and was thrilled when the Library Educational Technician job opened up.
Mrs. Cloutier is an avid reader who is happy spending her day around stacks of books. She loves organizing library displays, doing book talks with students, and trying to match students with just-right books.
Mrs Cloutier lives with my husband, Mark, on the Spurwink Marsh in Cape Elizabeth. Her house is a bit empty now, but not too long ago, it was filled with three busy children; Catherine, Zachary, and Andrew.
In her spare time, she likes to travel, ride her bike, take walks, cook and bake, read, do projects around her house, and spend time having adventures with her husband and children.
This is a picture of Mrs Cloutier and her husband, Mark, on the dock at Little Cranberry Island.
