Mr. Roy

Hi, my name is Kevin Roy and I've been teaching at WHS since 2015. I also did my student teaching here after moving back to Maine from New Hampshire where I lived and worked as a College Admission Counselor, and prior to that as Director of Contracts and Operations for a small consulting business. I use Google Classroom consistently to post lessons and announcements, and I use TurnItIn to collect students' written submissions. You can connect with these classes through the links below.

Please email me at kroy@rsu14.org for information at any time.  I look forward to a great year!
 
Sincerely,
