Hello. My name is Jill Wilson. I was born and raised in a small town in upstate New York. In fifth grade, I decided I wanted to be a teacher and played the part every chance I had. Whether I was reading to younger students, volunteering in classrooms, or tutoring after school, I was always involved in helping kids. When I graduated from Cambridge Central School in 2006, I attended The College of St. Joseph to pursue an education degree. I took both general education and special education courses, though my degree was in general education. I graduated in 2010. I then began to substitute in the local school districts and work at a Summer Camp for kids as an Aquatic Director and After School Program as a Head Counselor. In the Fall of 2011 I started graduate school at The College Of Saint Rose. During this time, I continued to work as a substitute as well as at both the summer and after school programs. I pursued and received a Masters in Literacy with a Certification in Special Education in May 2013. Chester–Andover Elementary School started my teaching career. I have found a great joy and comfort as part of the community and plan to stay!

802-875-6860I have been an educator in southern Vermont for over twenty years, working with children from grades PK-8 as a teacher, instructional coach, interventionist, and administrator. Although I find every age and position has its charms, being in the classroom with younger students is my favorite gig. I have a B.A. from Carleton College in sociology/anthropology, an M.Ed. from Lesley College in Elementary Education, and an Ed.S. from Simmons College in Language and Literacy Learning. I am currently in a certificate program at Harvard University in Leading School Change. I live in Springfield where I enjoy tending my garden in the summer, sitting by the woodstove in the winter, and swimming and running all year round.
