Renee Duncan, Director
After teaching for and directing Summer Field Studies for several years, Renee is thrilled about the idea of spending another summer amongst small hands covered in paint and faces full of laughter & curiosity. She comes to us from SE Michigan (look at the palm of your right hand--she grew up where your thumb meets your palm). There she spent her childhood tromping through water and woods. Renee fell in love with coastal Maine in third grade and after finishing school at Michigan State University she came back to Mount Desert Island to work as the raptor intern for Acadia National Park. She has spent the past three summers working on the island as a teacher, interpreter, ranger, and farmer. Renee enjoys walking the trails and carriage roads with her small pig named Kevin, visits to the library, swimming in Somes Pond, and art projects. She so looks forward to a summer of sunshine, dancing, kite-flying, and stirring imaginations.
