Oak Grove School Believes...
As a community of teachers, families, and students our purpose is to provide opportunities to maximize learning while being kind, safe, responsible and respectful.
Our goal is to foster a culturally rich and inclusive environment to promote a love of learning, a sense of belonging, and the skills necessary to become a thoughtful, creative and productive member of one’s community.
This is my first year at Oak Grove School and I’m already having such a great time! I am so fortunate to do a job that I love every day and that I get to work in a wonderful community. Prior to becoming a principal I was an Assistant Principal at Brattleboro Union High School and before that I taught a variety of grade levels at the elementary school level.
I taught in two schools in the area Vernon Elementary School and Green Street School in Brattleboro; preceding a move back to Vermont, I spent five years teaching at P.S. 76 in the Bronx as a special educator. After graduating from Brattleboro Union High School, I attended Manhattan College in the Bronx. There I earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s degree in special education. Most recently, I completed a post-master’s certification in educational leadership at Keene State College.
I’m so excited to be a part of the Oak Grove School community! I love to learn and one of the most important things I can do in this new role is to foster a school community where students love to learn as well! When I’m not at school I like to be outside walking or hiking, I enjoy reading and also watching tv, and I love to spend time with my family and friends!
