Elementary Science and Reading

 Fourth Grade


I am a fifth-generation Vermonter and grew up in the town of Wheelock.  I attended Miller’s Run Graded School in Sheffield and Lyndon Institute in Lyndon Center.  After graduation, I enrolled in the Elementary Education program at Lyndon State College.  

I graduated with my degree in 1988 and got married to my husband, Arnold, two weeks later.  We live in West Burke where we have raised two children, Thomas and Elisabeth – both alumni of Burke Town School and Lyndon Institute.

My first teaching job was at Sacred Heart Elementary School in Newport teaching Kindergarten.  I have worked at Burke Town School for 20 years and love the community.  I have been a Modern Woodmen Junior Leader for 25 years.   Other jobs have included secretarial work, cashier, dairy farming, day care, and pre-school.

In my free time, I like reading, camping, photography and family game nights.  

 My class motto is Fair, Firm and Fun!!
