Here's a sample schedule and curriculum overview for 5/6

Ms. Hopper
I have lived in beautiful Fayston for just over 20 years. My partner, Dan, our dog Watson, and I are experiencing empty-nesting for the first time this fall as our three adult (ish!) children have left home to pursue college and graduate degrees.  
I began teaching part time in the Mad River Valley in 2006 at Waitsfield Elementary before making the move to MES in 2012 in special education.  I am currently in my 8th year teaching fifth and sixth grade.  I LOVE working and building relationships with Moretown School’s oldest students and their families. 
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, hiking, reading, and taking trips to the ocean.  

Ms. B:

My name is Mish Boreanaz (kids usually call me Ms. B). I grew up here in Vermont and attended Waterbury Elementary and Harwood Middle and High Schools. I studied Environmental Science, Marine Biology, and Education in college. 

I live in Waterbury with my husband Allan, who is a wildlife biologist and forester. We have two young boys who are in 6th and 9th grades in district, and a dog named Remy. We are a busy and active family and enjoy being outside. We love to bike, swim, and work in the garden in the summer and ski in the winter (downhill and XC). When I’m not outside, I also really love to cook, read, and knit!

I have taught 5th grade and 7th and 8th grade Language Arts at Crossett Brook Middle School, 6th grade at Main Street Middle School, and 5th and 6th grade at Woodbury Elementary school for 7 years before coming to Moretown.

I love being a part of the 5th and 6th grade team here at Moretown Elementary. I work hard to build a welcoming, positive, and fun classroom community that focuses on growth mindset and facing challenging tasks, collaborative work, integrating technology, SCIENCE, Outdoor Learning/ECO, lots of reading, and opportunities for independent choice learning in all subject areas.
