Ms. Vandal

I live in Waitsfield with my husband and two young children, a dog and a cat. Before teaching at MES, I led the “Nature School” program, a nature-based early education program at the Waitsfield Elementary School preschool, I was an ECO teacher for North Branch Nature Center and I taught 4-6 grade at the Bellwether School in Williston. Some of my hobbies include mountain biking, skiing, cooking, knitting and hanging out by the river. I have a Master’s of Education from the University of Washington, a BA from Middlebury College, and graduated from CVU in Hinesburg. 




Ms. Cingiser

I have lived in Warren for over 35 years with my husband Michael, my son Sam, (who is almost 27, lives in Florida with his dog, Chester and loves exploring the Everglades), my daughter Sarah, (who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York) and our dog Tilly.  I love to play tennis, read, walk, and hang out in my garden.  This summer, I was lucky enough to spend time on the Jersey Shore in Brigantine-watching sunrises and sunsets, eating good food, and spending time with my parents.  I also visited family in New York City and Rhode Island. It felt almost normal to travel a bit this summer. I am about to begin my 32nd or is it 33rd year teaching (Whoa!).  I spent seven years teaching 3rd and 4th graders in Brookfield then came here to Moretown, where I taught 5th and 6th graders, 3rd and 4th graders, and now, 1st and 2nd graders.
