Cindy Soule ’00G
In February 2022, Cindy Soule ’00 received the nation’s highest honor for science and math teachers.
A teacher at the Gerald E. Talbot School in Portland, ME, Cindy was one of only 104 recipients of the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) for the 2020 award cycle. She is one of just two teachers from Maine to receive the award.
She says, “At USM, when I was a graduate student, I loved being part of a community of learners. I loved being able to be in a cohort of people who came together to share their ideas.”
Soule has previously been named Maine Teacher of the Year for 2021 and Cumberland County Teacher of the Year in 2020. She is a graduate of USM’s Extended Teacher Education Program (ETEP).
