Marci Gaglione first fell in love with Washington County, Maine while visiting her grandparents during the summer months. She felt that someday she would return there to live, but before that would happen, she moved to Texas where she launched her career as a graphic artist and owned her own marketing business. During that thirty-five-year period, she also discovered an innate love of teaching and spent her free time as a literacy volunteer; serving on the board of the Texas Literacy Council and teaching English as a second language. She also taught others how to use design software programs like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop as part of her business.
Marci came back to Maine to be near her extended family ten years ago and has been pursuing her love of teaching, education and art ever since.
Marci first came in contact with the National Digital Equity Center through our tablet hotspot program that helps connect people to the internet in areas where there is limited coverage. “Isolation and loneliness has been a pandemic in rural Maine long before Covid 19,” says Marci. Now a Digital Learning Instructor, Marci teaches classes in our Aging Well with Technology series, along with WordPress, a software program used to build websites. Her favorite class to teach is Using the Cloud Library. “I absolutely love teaching people how to use the Cloud Library and showing them how they can do family genealogy” says Marci. In her free time Marci paints, weaves, and takes walks on the blueberry barrens with her dog.
