About Principal Nadeau

I am a Plaisted native who graduated from the University of Maine at Fort Kent in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in education. I recently earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Maine at Farmington.

I began my teaching career at the same place my education began, Eagle Lake Elementary School. I was fortunate to teach there for two years, and was then brought to Fort Kent Elementary School, along with the rest of grades 6-8 from Eagle Lake Elementary.

I taught Social Studies at CHS for two years before returning to my middle school roots at VRMS.

As well as teaching at CHS, I coached the Lady Warriors soccer team since 2010-2017.

“One of the great experiences of my life has been being a part of all of these teams,” . I have also has served as a class advisor, Project Graduation advisor, and Link Crew Coordinator.

I am very proud of my family, wife Stephanie Nadeau and our children Charlotte, 8, and Abram, 6. (as of 2021)

“I love playing with my kids and spending time with my wife; I really am nothing without them,” he said.

"Teamwork makes the Dreamwork"

About Dean Anderson

Kevin Anderson, Dean of Students at Fort Kent Elementary School, is a former Valley Rivers Middle School science teacher.

A 1986 Fort Kent Community High School graduate, I am well rooted in the community. I earned a bachelor’s degree from University of Maine at Fort Kent with majors in secondary life science and secondary English, for which I graduated magna cum laude.

I, and my wife, Janice Anderson, a registered nurse at Northern Maine Medical Center, own Anderson Family Farm in Fort Kent, which they operate along with our three children.

I also earned a masters degree in educational leadership summa cum laude from University of New England.

I first began teaching middle school science 14 years ago at Fort Kent Elementary School, before seventh-and eighth-grade students were transferred to the Fort Kent Community High School building where Valley Rivers Middle School was formed.

I worked with educator Robby Nadeau as middle school teachers at FKES, before the transition. Nadeau is now FKES principal.

As former FKES colleagues, we are eager to work together once again.
