Rebecca Boudreau — Teacher and Owner of Learning for Success

Ellsworth, ME — Rebecca Boudreau is being recognized by Continental Who’s Who as a Trusted Teacher in the Education field, acknowledging her professional excellence as a teacher and the owner of Learning for Success.

Ms. Boudreau is a respected teacher and the owner of Learning for Success, an educational center in Ellsworth, ME. She launched her business in April 2021. She has been teaching since 2001.  Her learning center provides one-on-one tutoring (both in-person and online), small group learning, community involvement opportunities, homeschooling cohorts, online homeschooling, and more.

Ms. Boudreau loves teaching, and when the pandemic caused the world to go to virtual learning, she saw that there was a way to make this work permanently. She has Multiple Sclerosis (MS), so when teachers and children started to slowly go back to in-person learning, she feared it might not be the best situation for her health. Ms. Boudreau has created curriculums for homeschooled children and provides a safe place for them to meet for educational experiences. She has found this to be very rewarding, not only for her but also for the students with whom she works.

“Since I was a little girl growing up in Ellsworth and attending the Ellsworth Schools, I knew I wanted to be a teacher,” Ms. Boudreau recalls. “I used to steal chalk from my teachers’ chalkboard trays, so I could have my own classroom at home. I attended school all day and would play school at home in my free time. Since I always planned to become a teacher, I was consistently aware of how my teachers made me feel. I learned that the good teachers were the ones who were willing to laugh with me, see me as an individual, and care about me beyond my grades.”

Ms. Boudreau has implemented these assessments and criteria throughout her own profession. She strives to build a strong rapport with her students and their parents. And, she views the education of young people as a collaboration. Her mantra is a quote from Roosevelt: “People do not care what you know until they know that you care.”

“After all, we are a team in this endeavor,” Ms. Boudreau continues. “The good teachers (in my experience) were also the ones who mastered the subject area and always wanted to learn more and could admit when they didn’t know the answer. I have said to almost every student I have taught that education is the one thing that can’t be taken from you. Society can take away your character, dignity, and integrity. Once it is learned and earned, education is yours forever.”

In pursuit of higher education, Ms. Boudreau earned her Master’s degree in Secondary Education at Grand Canyon University, and she is currently working on her Doctorate (Ed.D) in Educational Leadership online at Capella University. Recently, Ms. Boudreau has been inducted into The International Society of Female Professionals and The National Society of Leadership and Success.

During her free time, Ms. Boudreau mostly loves spending time with her family, which includes her husband and three children, ages 14, 16, and 19. In addition, she enjoys traveling, reading, writing, and spending time near the ocean.
