A double major in English and history at Williams College, Mr. Kamilewicz taught and coached at Hebron Academy and at Burke Mountain Academy before joining the military and skiing for the National Guard Biathlon Team and USBA (Europa Cup). He was deployed to Iraq in 2005-2006. He received the Army Commendation Medal with Valor; Army Commendation Medal; Army Good Conduct Medal; National Defense Service Medal, Iraq; Campaign Medal; Global War on Terrorism Medal; Army Service Ribbon; Overseas Service Ribbon; Armed Forces Reserve Medal with M Device; and a Combat Infantryman Badge.
He went on to earn a master’s in education and returned to Gould for three years to teach both English and history. He went on to teach at Caribou High School and to work for Maine Winter Sports as a youth biathlon coach. For the past few years, he has worked for L.L.Bean and Wayfair.
He and wife Sarah have skied and raced all over the world, from Lillehammer, Norway, and Toblach, Italy, to Portillo, Chile, and bariloche in Argentina – but they always have loved the mountains of western Maines. He is excited to be back and can’t wait to share the outdoor lifestyle and adventures with their son, Tim, and with Gould students
