Teresa Sweet graduated from Arlington High School and went to Siena College, graduating with a degree in Sociology and Education. She has continued her education through Castleton, the University of Vermont, the College of St Joseph, as well as some online classes.
Her 30-plus years of teaching experience include teaching elementary students for 17 years in the classroom and six years as a reading specialist (she is trained in several reading approaches). Mrs. Sweet has worked with children from the age of six weeks old up to age 21. She has taught special education for the past 13 years at various grade levels.
Mrs. Sweet also spent time as an EMT on the Arlington Rescue Squad for two years. She is a life-long resident of Arlington and lives with her husband, Perry, two cats, two dogs, and three horses. Her passions are working with children and spending time on her small farm. She has two young grandchildren who occupy much of her time outside of work, and she loves to read, bake, ski, and horseback ride.
Children are at the heart of all we do. We nurture a child's curiosity, ignite enthusiasm for exploring, develop tools for inquiry, for invention, for achievement. We welcome families into a community-wide collaboration to help our children grow into their best selves - responsible citizens and stewards of the greater world, makers of the future.
