First Grade

Jill Bell

Hello, my name is Jill Bell.  I am excited to be returning to the Northeast Kingdom after being away for many years.  I grew up in North Concord, VT, I attended Concord school through eighth grade and graduated from St. Johnsbury Academy.  I have spent the last 5 years teaching at the International School of Bangkok in Bangkok, Thailand.  Before that I taught one year in Doha, Qatar.  Prior to that I taught First grade for 10 years in Highlands Ranch, Colorado.  I have a Masters degree in Educational Psychology from the University of Colorado at Denver and I have received Reggio Emilia training in Reggio, Italy.  I love teaching this age group and can not wait to meet everyone.  Besides teaching first grade, I love to travel, ski, kayak, spend time with my family and enjoy the outdoors. I am looking forward to being a part of the Burke Town School community.
