Welcome Back!

Dear GES Families,

Our staff is so excited to welcome all our students have our school buzzing with learning once again.  I could not be more happy to begin my second year as a Grafton Panther! We will have quite a few new faces here at GES.  Please join me in welcoming:

Corina Stack is our new kindergarten teacher. Corina is new to GES, but is not new to teaching.  For the past two years, she has taught Title One in Saxtons River.

Jeannette Mills is a new Title One teacher.  Jeannette is not new to GES, as she has been a paraprofessional here for years.  Jeannette has a history of early childhood education and is excited to step into this new role at GES.  

Rebecca Elrick is a new Title One teacher.  Rebecca is a recent UVM graduate and is excited to start her career in Grafton.

Madison Martell is a new paraprofessional at GES.  She is new to the position and our SU.

Erin Shaw is a new paraprofessional at GES.  She has been teaching in our SU for a number of years and this will be her first year at GES.

Veronica Lewis is joining us as a new paraprofessional.  She may be new to GES, but has multiple years of experience as a paraprofessional at Central Elementary.

Paulette Sharkey is joining us as a paraprofessional. Paulette is new to GES, but is not new to education as she has spent a number of years in the Head Start program.
