Principal Jody Chamberlin

The weekly newsletters will be posted under the news and announcements section.  Here is a little information about me. 

Years at VUMHS:  I am starting year two.  However, I taught Social Studies for 13 years and was a School Counselor for 1 year.  This means I am heading into year 16, and each year gets better than the last!

My educational philosophy: I could talk about this for hours and hours but I will keep it short.  I truly believe that all people can learn, that we must educate the whole person, that to build trust and compassion with anyone you have to be honest and vulnerable with yourself first, and that actions speak louder than words.  

In my free time I like to: Explore VT, I love the outdoors.  I love to take pictures of nature.  This is more of a nice weather activity.  In the winter I like to dive into a TV show.  I also love to travel and explore the historical areas that I used to teach about. 

What I’m currently reading or a book I’d recommend: I am currently reading Dare to Lead by Brené Brown.  I would recommend the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo.

A strength I bring to school is: Excitement!  I love the field of education.  It can be tough and there are challenges but I still love coming to work every day.  

A hope for VUMHS this year: To continue to use student and teacher voice to strengthen our school climate and community.
