Kieve – Ted Cooke

I came to the hilltop a shy, “husky” boy just a few days short of my 12th birthday with 17 armpit hairs and a busted up leg to my name. Knowing nothing and no one when I arrived, I walked to South Harris from my first meal at Pasquaney. While passing Innisfree, a man asked if I was Teddy Cooke.

I’ve experienced nothing but positive vibes as I’ve gotten to know all of their wonderful faces. During my eight weeks at Bucksport, I have been able to:

Searsport EIR

At that point, there were a lot of cool questions without answers, but there never seemed to be any doubt that sending TLS staff into schools around Maine was a really, really good idea.
