Main Office

Brenda Hartshorn, Administrative Assistant

I’ve been very fortunate to have taught at MES for over 35 years in grades K-3.  I retired from the classroom, and have moved into the office as the school’s administrative assistant.  I’m thrilled to remain connected to this incredible school and community.  It truly feels like home and family.   During my spare time I enjoy camping, paddling, hiking, gardening, reading a good book on the beach, and spending time with my two grandsons.

Kate Liptak, Principal

I grew up right here in Central Vermont and attended Harwood Union High School.  After attending college in New York, I decided to move back to my home state and start my teaching career in South Royalton.  After teaching music for 14 years, I took the jump into educational leadership last year and am thrilled to be joining the Moretown Elementary School team!  I live in Moretown with my husband and our three children; all of whom attend MES. Outside of school I can be found spending time with my large family, supporting the Red Sox (even when they lose), baking, gardening and training our puppy.
