A LITTLE ABOUT ME:
Twenty-six years ago, I left Vermont as a new Navy wife to begin a military career with my husband, Brian. Our duty stations have included Pensacola & Jacksonville, FL; Hawaii; Virginia; Naples, Italy; and Rhode Island. The summer of 2017, my husband retired after flying helicopters for the Navy and we returned to our roots in Vergennes. Our three boys have enjoyed our Navy career, but are very happy to finally live in the place they have called “home” all their lives, though they’ve never lived here.
While bouncing from one duty station to another, I managed to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and most recently, a Master’s degree in Reading Education. In Jacksonville, I taught first grade for a few years before we started our family. While our boys were young, I remained home to provide stability and consistency through multiple long-deployments and duty station moves. I homeschooled my boys through some of our transitions and duty stations and kept my teaching certificate current with professional development. Once all our boys were in school full-time, I returned to the classroom. First, I worked as a substitute teacher and took on long-term substitute positions in kindergarten, third grade, and as a reading specialist. I have also taught kindergarten full-time.
I am thrilled to join the Mary Hogan family and look forward to getting to know our staff, parents and especially our students.
