Math Interventionists:

Rachel Robillard

 Math Coach, Math Intervention

For the past 12 years I have been teaching at the Burke Town School.  This year I will be teaching mathematics to the 4th and 5th grades as well as providing math intervention to grades K-5.  I look forward to spending the year instilling a love for learning and mathematics in all of the students I work with.   When I am not in the classroom I am spending my free time exploring the outdoors with my husband Gregory and our two children; Harrison and Ella. 

Karen Hamelin

Kindergarten-Sixth Grade Math Interventionist
My name is Karen Hamelin and it is a pleasure to have the opportunity to be part of the Burke Town School Teaching Staff. My career as a classroom teacher began in 1992. My current position as a Math Interventionist allows me to do what I love most.   I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Reading from Lyndon State College in 1992. I have a Vermont Teaching License with HQT status that includes more than 40 post-graduate credits with 24 of them being in Mathematics.  In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors hiking with my son, creating and maintaining flowerbeds, and watching my alpacas frolic in the warm summer sun. Enjoying a stroll up a river panning for gold, or just simply discovering rock treasures also brings me great pleasure. I am looking forward to a great year working with your children and being a part of the Burke community.

In addition to teaching experience at academia level he has 4+ years experience teaching Math and Science to middle and high school students. He is dedicated to student success and treats students with respect, friendly encouragement and sense of humor.  When teaching Math, Chemistry, Physics, Biology topics at any grade level he draws bigger picture and encourages a broader view of interconnected knowledge of our world. He uses logical reasoning and scientific methods to bring students to answering all kinds of “why?” questions which lead them to learning skills through answering the “how?” questions of real life.  When he is not at school, Alex enjoys working on R&D projects, playing ping-pong and violin and traveling with his lovely wife Katya.
