Library: Cate Hagarty
Hello, Oak Grove! Thank you for the warm welcome! I am very excited to be joining the Oak Grove community this school year.
My name is Cate Hagarty and I am the librarian at Oak Grove for the 2020-2021 school year while Lexi is home with her new baby. I moved with my family to Brattleboro a year ago to be with my brother and his partner as they started a family.
I love biking, boats, reading, chocolate, good coffee, grilling out on my deck, cooking vegetarian meals for the people I love at home, and being outside.
I graduated from University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a BA in English & Spanish in 1998 and later studied library science at Queens College. I have been working in public education since 1998. I am interested in social and emotional learning, I believe that there is a book for every reader, and I am committed to working to eradicate racism through open conversations about race with students of all ages. I believe that building a better future is up to all of us.
Technology Integration: Greg Montgomery
I started at Oak Grove in the winter of 2016 and prior to that I spent the previous ten years working at various elementary schools around Windham county as technology specialist and technology integration specialist I enjoy working closely with classroom teachers to get the most out of technology in their instruction. Having been a student at Oak Grove it is a pleasure to return as a staff member.
Before entering the world of education I spent over 20 years working in the private sector for technology based firms ranging from web hosting to internet security companies.
I have a B.A.. in Business information Systems from UMass and M.A. in Computing in Education at Columbia University Teachers College and M.Ed from the University of North Texas.
In my free time I enjoy playing many sports, with golf being my favorite.
