Vasanthi Meyette and Sam Nelson honored as Vermont teacher-leaders by ECET2

SCS is a school filled with exceptional educators, and two of our stars were honored this past weekend at the annual ECET2 NH/VT gathering in Hanover, NH.   Sam Nelson, middle school social studies teacher on the Winton Team was recognized for his leadership and enthusiasm in bringing standards-based learning and Act 77 personalization efforts to SCS as a member of the Tarrant Leadership Team, while Vasanthi Meyette was recognized for her energetic leadership around schoolwide wellness efforts and her work with our MTSS-B team developing and improving our behavioral support programs.   Both do incredible work in the classroom everyday, and then dedicate countless hours to many of the initiatives our school has underway.   SCS was proud to have them represent us at this elite gathering of teacher leaders from across Vermont and NH.

The event was a bi-state celebration for teacher-leaders, by teacher-leaders, that embraces passion and expertise by providing high-quality, relevant professional development. The annual conference grants teacher-leaders the deserved opportunity to collaborate and learn alongside one another.   The conference was generously sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and local NH and VT businesses.
