Anne Judson has been serving since retiring from Saint Michael’s College as Director of Graduate Education in 2014. Among other teaching jobs of her 41-year career were Title 1 Math, Computer Coordinator for Hinesburg Community School (K-8), English Language Learning tutor in Essex Junction, and Preschool teacher at the Tufts University lab school. Anne’s pre-K to graduate school teaching experiences provide her with a solid understanding of how schools work and of the support all teachers need.
She is particularly interested in working toward all entering Kindergartners being ready to learn. The passage of Act 166 will help the District meet that goal. Act 166 requires that all Vermont schools provide publicly funded prekindergarten for a minimum of ten hours per week for all 3, 4 and 5 year old children.
Anne’s other volunteer work is with the Vermont Refugee Resettlement Program collecting and distributing kitchen supplies and furniture for newly arrived refugees.
