Office Location Merrill Hall, Room 118B My office is inside the main office on the first floor. Just come in and ask Janice Bacon and she can direct you.
Office Hours I’m on campus most days. The easiest way to see me is to send me an email to set up an appointment.
Dr. Julie DellaMattera is a Preceptor in the Honors College; an associate professor of Early Childhood Education and Development; and the Department Chair for Educational Leadership, Higher Education, and Human Development in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Maine. She received her Doctorate of Education degree in Educational Leadership with a focus on early education policy from the University of Maine.
Prior to doctoral study, Julie worked as an elementary educator, a multi-age classroom teacher, a child development specialist, an in-home literacy specialist, and was the co-owner and head teacher of a preschool that was awarded a State Certificate of Quality.
Additionally, she has worked as the education specialist for Hancock and Washington counties, a gifted and talented coordinator for MSAD 56, and as a statewide early childhood trainer for Maine Roads to Quality. She serves on numerous state-level early childhood committees and is an advocate for supporting and sustaining quality early education programming. Currently, she teaches courses about infant and toddler development, early childhood math methods, creative thinking, and leadership in early education.
On a personal note, she is a bit of a sci-fi geek (which explains her love of Doctor Who), loves any and all music (which explains her 30+ concerts a year), and can’t get enough of traveling.
