NOBLEBORO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- This week's Maine Education Association Inspiring Educator is Paula Schuster of Nobleboro Central School.

Schuster's work bringing in to school "Senior Buddies" over the last number of years has proved meaningful for both students and their buddies.

The relationships forged are truly a gift to all. Students and their buddies meet in the art room at school, and Paula prepares creative programming during that time so students and the seniors both benefit.
