Tom Marx is excited to be part of Maine Ocean School. As a retired superintendent of schools he brings 40+ years of administrative experience working with schools along the Maine Coast including Rockport, Camden, Lincolnville, Searsport, Stockton Springs, North Haven, Monhegan, and Portland.
He taught middle and high school English, as well as a number of graduate level courses: Foundations of Education, Political Influences on the Educational System, Research Design, School Law, and Organizational Change. He also devoted a lot of time defining and expanding education opportunities for gifted, talented, and special needs students. He turned down a professorship at the University of Maine Orono in order to continue working in public schools.
Both his daughters and their families live in Maine where one is a director in a Center for Equality while the other is a school principal.
