Deb Armer, Director

Deb moved to midcoast Maine in late 2015.  It felt like a homecoming to her.  She has  traveled to Maine often and has family in Rockland.  Deb is originally from Long Island NY, but has lived  in Rochester NY, Chicago, and Denver.  

She received her Bachelor of Science from St. Lawrence University in the Adirondacks, and her Masters of Library Science from Dominican University, River Forest, IL.  Deb has broad management and library experience, having worked in academic, public and corporate libraries over the course of her career.

She loves meeting new people, listening to their stories and sharing experiences.  She is forever curious, an avid reader, and enjoys exploring new places.  Other interests include birding, sailing, and collecting antique photographs.

She is thrilled to be a part of the amazing group of people who visit, and work at Jackson Memorial Library

Sharon Moskowitz, Children's Librarian

 

Having moved to Tenants Harbor in 2013, Sharon feels that she has "come home". Before moving here, Sharon raised three children and taught school for seventeen years in Upstate New York. She now lives with her husband and her three big dogs.

The opportunity to continue working with children at the special place that is JML is a dream come true.

Besides walking with the dogs each day, Sharon loves to get her hands dirty in the garden.  Sharon is now our Children’s Librarian and continues to oversee After-School Programming.

 

Beckie Delaney, Pre-K Teacher & Admin

Beckie is the lead Pre-K instructor for Jackson Memorial Library. She graduated from UMaine Farmington in 2002 and moved to town shortly afterwards, teaching in Warren for the following nine years.

She is living with her husband, captain at the Monhegan Boat Line, and 2 school-aged children, both of whom attended the Pre-K program and are the fifth generation to live in their home. Beckie recently received her Early Childhood certificate through the UMaine Online program, adding to her Elementary Education Certificate.

She absolutely loves her job, and strives to make each day engaging, educational, and fun. She works with children to establish routines, habits, and skills to make learning at “the Big School” a breeze, all disguised with fun! She enjoys being outdoors, especially by the ocean or in the woods.

Tracy Leavitt, Pre-K Assistant

Tracy Leavitt, the JML Pre-K Teacher Assistant has been a St. George resident since 2002, when she moved here shortly after receiving a BA in Communications from St. Joseph's College.  Her daughter, Hannah, was fortunate to have participated for 2 years in the JML Pre-K Program. During that time,

Tracy was an active parent volunteer and coordinated many fundraising activities to support the Pre-K program. Working with pre-school aged children in the community is not only fun for Tracy, but truly fulfilling and rewarding as she helps to prepare these students for their future educational years.

She and her husband, Chris, have two daughters who attend St. George School. Tracy enjoys attending her daughters' many activities, camping, fly fishing in Western Maine, and biking with her family.
