Tonya LaChance-Bufano is very excited to join the Many Rivers 3-4-5 team. She has a BS from the University of Southern Maine in Social Sciences, and took her teaching certification classes at the University of New England. She taught in Los Angeles for three years and decided to move to Maine to continue teaching in her home state. She taught multi-age classes on Peaks Island for seven years and then moved to The East End Community School working under the Expeditionary Learning Model. She most recently finished the coursework for Teaching English as a Second Language at the University of Southern Maine. She enjoys project-based learning and believes all students can be successful by meeting them where they are on their own path of learning, and taking them to the next level. She enjoys reading, sewing, gardening, and spending time with her family.
