She graduated from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh with a B.A. in Education and an M.A. in Education from Southern New Hampshire University. Prior to coming to the Village School, Ms. Gibbons taught high school English at Mount Anthony Union High School. She values and respects each child as a unique individual. She is committed to ensuring that each child will become a better, stronger person from their year in her classroom. Her classroom teaching is rich and innovative affording children the opportunity to become a “notable person” for a month, to design unique science experiments, and to promote each child’s creativity. Children in her classroom will delve into rich experiences and uncover the joy found in the discovery of their potential as a unique person.
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.
