Why I love Teaching in Chelsea:
Why do I love Chelsea? That’s an easy one. It’s the only place I have ever called home. I know the community very well here, and they know me, which has made it easy for me to feel welcome and supported. Some of the students that I currently teach are students whose older siblings’ were some of my closest friends. Chelsea just has that kind of small town feel, the kind that you can’t find anywhere else. The connection between the classroom teacher and the students is so much deeper than that of a larger school. As a former student and now a teacher in Chelsea I can tell you whole heartedly that we have one of the best communities a student could ever ask for. You go to a sporting or school event, and you’ll always find a dedicated group of people there, no matter what the weather; cheering and supporting our hometown heroes and giving them that sense of “We love what your doing and we’re proud of you.” That positive atmosphere makes everyone, new or native to this little town, feel like they belong here, like this is where they were meant to be.
Our health and physical education curriculum are based on national standards and Vermont Grade Level Expectations.
