Vergennes Union High School
Matt DeBlois is patient, kind, humorous and keenly intelligent. He demonstrates the perfect combination of humor and sensitivity and always goes the extra mile for his students, not just in French, but in Morning Meeting, or Call-Back. His humor is contagious and always cheers you up when you’re down.
Matt challenges his students academically; he supports them and never gives up on them.
Matt is always there to give thoughtful, intelligent, and honest advice to colleagues. He cares deeply about his students and VUHS as an institution. He has displayed outstanding leadership as a teacher and has put the student front-and-center of everything we do as a school.
