Charlotte Ellis

Maine DOE team member Charlotte Ellis is being highlighted this week as the part of a Get to know the DOE Team campaign! Learn a little more about Charlotte in the brief question and answer below.

What are your roles with DOE?

I am the Data Manager, my responsibilities are to manage the Data Team and to ensure that data coming in and out of the Department meets state and federal requirements as well as not being overly burdensome to the districts, all while being safe and secure.

What do you like best about your job? 

I love working across all the programs and learning about how all the programs work to enhance education across Maine.

How or why did you decide on this career? 

I sort of fell into it over time.  I started as a programmer long ago and became a Systems Analyst for MDOE.  I really love working with the data and with MDOE, so when this position became available, I was very interested.

What do you like to do outside of work for fun? 

I love baking, reading, and spending time with friends and family, especially my two grandsons.
