Edmunds TWP, ME
Ann grew up in Vermont and graduated from South Burlington High School in 1977 and Middlebury College in 1981. Shortly after graduating from college she found herself in Sierra Leone, West Africa, serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer working with elementary school teachers. After two years in West Africa, she found much of the first world unsettling so she found Washington County and settled here. One of the first people Ann met in Washington County was Alan Furth. In 1983, Ann volunteered in Alan’s fourth grade classroom and enjoyed the wonderful relationship he and his students shared. By 1985, Ann began working as a teacher at Charlotte Elementary School. She has worked there since with a six year hiatus during which she parented her daughter Sophia and son William. She currently teaches the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. Ann was married to Christopher Guida until his death in 2016. She still lives on their farm in Edmunds, Maine.
