Mrowe

Maureen Rowe (Program Manager)- is a Plymouth State University alum, receiving her B.S. in Childhood Studies: Teacher Certification ’12. During her time at PSU, she was involved in many student organizations on campus, including Common Ground; an environmental conscious and social justice organization. Her involvement with Common Ground introduced her to D Acres and the rest is history!

Post graduating PSU, Maureen moved to the Berkshires (Northwestern CT and Western MA) to continue her love of teaching and being outdoors at an environmental education program called “Nature’s Classroom”. Maureen was fortunate enough to be a teacher at Nature’s Classroom for 3 years before directing her own Nature’s Classroom site as a Program Coordinator for 2 years. Her years as a teacher, she was able to teach ecology, science of baking, cultural based activates, primitive skills, and a whole variety of hands-on activities. As a Program Coordinator, she continued to grow as a leader. She worked with 20 staff members and visiting schools to orchestrate a program catered to the needs of their students of the school.  Nature’s Classroom only ran during the falls and spring months of the year. During the summers and winter, Maureen occupied her time via other outdoor based jobs. In the summer, she continued her passion for outdoor leadership and education holding summer camp coordinator positions s at overnight 4H and YMCA summer camps, as well as one summer at a science day camp. During the winters, Maureen worked jobs in the outdoor recreational industry; YMCA winter program instructor and sales represented at Okemo Mountain Resort.

Maureen is excited to follow her passion for working with others and working with the youth as the Program Manager at D’ Acres. This position will wear many hats (as do most positions at D Acres: hostel management, marketing/advertising, grant writing, and a big focus on youth coordination (farm to school, youth field trips, etc.).
