This podcast features a conversation that I had with Ann Delaney. Ann is the new Director of Adult Education at Island Adult & Community Education. She brings warmth, enthusiasm and knowledge to her position, all of which shine throughout our discussion.

Among other things we discuss how people can access offerings at Island Adult & Community Education for everything from obtaining their high school certification to taking CNA classes. I love the hands-on approach Ann brings to her job and her focus on inclusivity. We also talk about how the pandemic has impacted adult education and highlight the benefits of working with a tight knit and connected community like Deer Isle-Stonington.

I want to focus your attention on the upcoming CNA course being offered through Island Adult & Community Education. The lack of CNA’s has been named as a reason that the Island Nursing Home was forced to close last year. Right now, thanks to local donors, the upcoming class is free. Now is the time to learn a new skill and help this community!
