Catherine Gordon, a math teacher at Bangor High School, is not happy about the situation.

She was told to remove the tree in an email from the building principal last week.

Gordon said she has been decorating her classroom for Christmas for 30 years, with a tree a part of the decorations almost every year.

It looks like Main Congressman Bruce Poliquin has her back. He says that the display “should not be condemned, especially in our classrooms.”
