Rep. Sheila Lyman

State Representative, House District 76

Livermore Falls, Jay, and part of Livermore

Representative Sheila Lyman of Livermore Falls is currently serving her second term representing House District 76, which includes the towns of Livermore Falls, Jay, and part of Livermore.  She serves the 131st Legislature’s Joint Standing Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs. 

Rep. Lyman graduated from nearby Leavitt Area High School.  She earned her education degree from the University of Maine at Farmington and worked her entire career as an elementary school teacher.  She dedicated 36 years of her life to students at the same school.  During her career she served as a chairperson and leader for district grade level work and curriculum and assessment development at both the local and state levels. She served as a voice for educational change while presenting at a variety of schools around the state and country. In those years of service, she provided her students with educational experiences that laid the foundation for their journey into becoming a responsible citizen for their community.

She knows the importance of asking the hard questions that get to the root of a situation. She is not afraid to be the lone voice in the crowd. When facing opposing and differing opinions, she has worked to find a common ground in order to create an effective plan. She believes her experiences with educational politics have developed her ability to represent the citizens of District 76 in the Legislature.
