Mrs. Vargo's Board

I have worked at Waterville Elementary since 1988!! I started as the Special Educator, moved on to work at Enosburg Elementary School, then returned to Waterville to work as the 4/5 teacher, teaching with the 4-6 team for literacy, math, writing, and themes. This year, I have moved down the hall to work as the Intervention Teacher in grades 4-6.  I am very excited to be able to work alongside the other teachers to help kids have a successful school year!

A little about me:

I grew up in central Vermont, and have lived in Vermont my entire life.  My husband, Tony, and I have two adult children and two grandchildren.  We also have an adorable, though a little crazy, Australian Shepherd who keeps us on our toes.  In my free time, I enjoy going kayaking or paddle boarding, spending time in my garden, walking our dog, reading, volunteering, or playing in the Williston Town Band.  Spending time with my family is a very important part of my life outside of school.

Helping Kids Choose Books

It can be challenging to know what books to help our children read.  We want books to be "just right" for their reading level and still be interesting.  So many new books come out each year, it is hard to keep up!  Here are some resources that provide book reviews and guidance to help you and your child when looking at books.
