Welcome! Please join me in welcoming our new Visual and Performing Arts Specialist, Nate Menifield! Nate comes to the DOE with nine years of experience as a high school music educator. He earned the Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Education from the University of Southern Maine School of Music, the Master of Arts Degree in Education Policy, Organization, and Leadership Studies from the Stanford Graduate School of Education, and pursued additional undergraduate study at Harvard College. During his tenure in the classroom, he served as a department chair, music teacher mentor, and active leader in the Maine Music Educators Association at both the regional and state levels. At the local level, he has helped to navigate the implementation of standards, as well as the transition to proficiency-based assessment. This extensive school-based work is augmented by his experiences with large-scale organizational analysis and the development of visioning processes for systems-level change. A lifelong beneficiary of the arts in Maine, Nate is dedicated to the continued provision of opportunities to thrive in the arts for each of our state's students and educators. You can contact Nate at: Nathaniel.J.Menifield at maine.gov.
