Before that, I taught Reading, Language Arts, Social Studies in the Kearsarge community. I am also an adjunct instructor at Antioch University New England. With certification in special education, I am a strong advocate for inclusion and personalized learning for all. Thank you for allowing me to be part of Plainfield's warm and welcoming community.

When your children are here at school, we know that our first and foremost requirement is to keep them safe. Last week, we had our second fire drill for the year. Our building was cleared quickly, and your children were quiet and attentive to their teachers’ directions. Also, our Emergency Management team met to discuss and implement a few changes to improve our process. Additionally, we are updating and revising our Emergency Operation Plan. We will submit it to our local safety partners and the New Hampshire Department of Education for review.

This week is National Fire Safety Week, and in the spirit of safety and community, our local fire department spent time visiting the Kindergarten classrooms. When is the last time you reviewed the fire safety plan in your home? Use this website to take the National Fire Prevention Association quiz. Please dedicate one dinner time conversation this month to talk with your family about your family’s safety plan. Here are some resources to support your family conversations and learn more about our community’s first responders:

All of us here at Plainfield Elementary School want to thank our community’s first responders. We appreciate your help in keeping our community safe.


Thank you to all of the Plainfield First Responders!
