Principal Jennifer Kravitz

I grew up in Guilford, CT and went to college at Wesleyan University.  At Wesleyan, I majored in history and played varsity lacrosse for four years.  After I graduated, I returned to teach at my old high school, Hopkins School, in New Haven, CT.  At Hopkins, I taught 8th grade history (Russian and Chinese history), Ancient and Medieval European history, Modern European History, Civics, and a Soviet History elective.  I also coached lacrosse (JV and Varsity), JV field hockey, and JV soccer.  While at Hopkins, I got my M.A. in History from Yale University.  

In 2005, I moved to Vermont and became certified to teach in Vermont public schools.  From 2006-2014, I taught social studies at Rutland High School.  There I taught Ancient and Medieval World History, Modern World History, Civics and Economics as well as short term classes in Harry Potter, Spartan racing, trail running, and Soviet history.  I also coached the JV and Varsity lacrosse teams for six years.  I was a recipient of the Vermont ASCD Promising Educator Award in 2010 and was awarded a Rowland Fellowship in 2012 to establish a Global Studies concentration at Rutland High School.  While at Rutland, I earned my M.Ed. in Education Leadership at the Woodruff Institute at Castleton University.

I live in Middlebury with my husband Erik, two daughters - Kaisa and Maëlle, and two dogs - Nieve and Chili.  I love to play with my kids, garden with them, read lots of books on many different topics, practice yoga, and Nordic ski.

Assistant Principal Michaela Wisell

I grew up in Starksboro, VT and did my undergraduate work at UVM.  I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in teaching with a concentration in Physical Education and Health Education.  I later earned M.Ed in School Leadership at St. Michael's College.

Before joining the Mary Hogan team, I spent 14 years working in the Mount Abraham Unified School District as a physical education/health teacher and social emotional coach.  What drew me to Mary Hogan was that it afforded me the opportunity to begin my leadership career in Addison County in a school that is in many ways similar to the school in which I began my teaching career.

I live in Bristol with my husband and four children. I enjoy camping, hiking, and spending time with my family.
