Alicia E. McCormick, Principal


As we start the new school year and I enter my fifth year as the principal of Mount View Elementary School it feels like coming home to family! MVES has been so fortunate to retain all of our classroom teachers for the past several years, which means that this team works incredibly well together. We are committed to providing a quality education, making decisions that are in the best interests of our students, and embracing our community as neighbors and friends. I grew up in Liberty, Maine where my parents still live, and was a 1986 graduate of Mount View High School. I currently live in Unity with my husband, where we raised our seven children. We now have eight grandchildren, and three of them attend school right here at MVES!

This is my 21st year as an educator in RSU3. I graduated from the University of Maine in 1990 with a Bachelor’s in Speech Communication, and in 2003 with my Master’s in Education. During my years as a teacher I taught elementary school grades K-2, and middle school ELA and Social Studies. In 2017, I entered a CAS program to earn my certificate in Administration from the University of Maine at Farmington, and became certified as a K-12 Building Administrator in 2019.

Throughout my tenure I have provided leadership through my district work in literacy, gifted and talented, professional development, and curriculum development. I received the RSU3 Outstanding Award for my teaching in 2014, was nominated twice for Maine County Teacher of the Year, and won the RSU3 Leadership Award in 2022 for my work as principal. It is both an honor and a privilege to serve my community as the principal of Mount View Elementary School. This district, this school, these students represent my heart, my spirit, and my commitment. I look forward to continuing as the principal of Mount View Elementary School until my retirement many years from now!
