Anna Raumaker has been named the February Employee of the Month at College of the Mainland. Raumaker, who currently serves as the Director of the Child Lab School, has previously worked as a lab school teacher and adjunct faculty in Child Development at COM.
Described by her nominator as a “completely student-centered” person, Raumaker has worked at the college since 2003. During her time at COM, she worked diligently to make the lab school available to faculty who needed childcare during Assessment Day.
