How To Find Lewiston Adult Education At Lewiston High School [Lewiston Adult Education]

Lewiston Adult Education offers many classes at Lewiston High School, which is located at 156 East Ave. in Lewiston. The main entrance to the high school is the best way to reach our office and classes.

Here's the outside of Lewiston High School. The flagpole and sign serve as easy landmarks to spot the entrance.

If you follow the path behind the flagpole, you will reach the main doors.

Take a few more steps and enter the doors on the left. The doors on the right are locked.


The left-hand entrance has a set of double doors.

After going through the second set of doors, our office is straight ahead. A staff member at the front desk or standing in the lobby should be available to show where your class is.

Trimmer Wins Adult Education Teacher Of Year Award [Lewiston Adult Education]



          A lawyer who changed careers to teach adult education has picked up a top award.

            The Maine Adult Education Association presented Jessica Trimmer with its teacher of the year award on June 22 during its annual conference held at the University of Southern Maine’s Portland campus.

            Trimmer joined Lewiston Adult Education in 2006 after working as a lawyer for four years. Tutoring international students at the University of Southern Maine as a University of Maine School of Law student got her interested in teaching. Trimmer has taught Adult Basic Education, English Speakers of Other Languages and citizenship classes in addition to assisting inmates at the Androscoggin County Jail get their high school equivalency.

            She credited her fellow teachers at the Adult Learning Center with helping her when she first started and for their continued support. Trimmer, who teaches intermediate English, said her students’ work ethic impresses her and how some may know from six to eight different languages.

             A comment she heard in class from a student talking about community got her thinking about the overall mission she has.

             “It struck me because the learning center is a place where we come in from different communities and become one,”she said.
