My name is Melissa and I am pleased to be in the role as a Literacy Instructional Coach, in addition to continuing my work in the same capacity at Monkton Central School. I earned a Master’s degree in Education from The University of Vermont in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Language Arts. I have previously held roles in the MAUSD district as a Reading and Speech Language Specialist. For fun, I appreciate creating art, attending musicals and reading classic novels. Best of all, our beautiful state of Vermont allows me to enjoy the lake, swimming, rowing or hiking with my friends and family.
Hello! I am so happy to join the Beeman Elementary School community as a reading teacher this year. I feel fortunate to work in this beautiful, historic building with such a great team of educators. I am a graduate of the University of Michigan (B.A.) and the University of Vermont (M.Ed.). I live in South Starksboro with my husband and a small flock of chickens. We have a grown daughter who is a graduate student at Northeastern University. In my free time I love to read, complete crossword puzzles, bake sweet treats for friends and family, sew, and enjoy the incredible natural beauty of our state by hiking and kayaking with my husband.
