Elan School is pleased to announce the addition of Ande (Andrea) Lane, Special Education Coordinator, to our Education Department. Ande began her career in education by home schooling her own three daughters in the early 80's. Then, after tutoring students in the Lewiston/Auburn area for several years, Ande completed her Bachelor's in Special Education at the University of Maine at Farmington in 1996, double majoring in Emotional Disabilities/Behavior and Plant Science. She also worked as a special education teacher and later as a Teaching Principal at an elementary school. While there, she taught Wilson Reading, and worked with students who had severe learning disabilities as well as challenging behaviors.

Her energetic personality led Ande to concurrently develop her own business in 1999, Western Maine Educational Services, serving as an Education Consultant for Maine's growing home school population. She also had a few larger clients such as an NFI North, and Becket Family of Services. Ande served as Education Director for both agencies for several years. In 2004, she became a full time administrator and in December 2007, she received her Master's in Education Leadership from the University of Southern Maine.

Elan School is a coeducational, residential school for grades 8 - 12. Elan serves students classified as Emotionally Disturbed or who exhibit disruptive behaviors associated with ADHD and/or ODD.

Open Sky is honored to announce the addition of our newest team member, Katie Grace MacElveen, PhD. In addition to holding her doctorate in Clinical Psychology, Dr. MacElveen brings rich and diverse professional experiences to Open Sky. She has clinical experience in inpatient adolescent and adult psychiatric settings as well as private practice.

Dr. MacElveen's clinical specialties include addiction recovery, grief and trauma, transitions, emotional and behavioral difficulties, and educational challenges. She has also successfully launched two children of her own, who are dynamic young adults, now in their 20's.

In addition to her vast experience as a practitioner, Dr. MacElveen taught psychology and communications classes to young adults in several colleges and universities, including Naropa University, Fort Lewis College, and the Duke University MBA program. She has had an organizational consulting business that has taken her to many parts of the world to support high performance leadership and diversity awareness in firms including UBS, Motorola, and Microsoft.

Dr. MacElveen will be taking over the leadership as clinical therapist of our young adult team from Gregory Martin, MA. Gregory served as our young adult therapist at Open Sky for the last three years and completed his employment with us at the end of August 2009. Gregory was a leader in developing the rich and powerful young adult program at Open Sky.

After more than a decade in the industry, Gregory is taking a sabbatical from wilderness therapy and is on to new pursuits. We are incredibly grateful for the service Gregory has provided to students, families and to our Open Sky community.
