Third Grade Team

Classroom Teacher:  

Jenn Germain

This year  will be Jenn’s fifth year teaching third grade at Green Street School.  Before joining the Green Street family, she spent 10 years as head teacher at The Owl Tree Nursery School.  Jenn has been in the field of education for 20+ years. She earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology with a second major in education from Castleton State College, now Castleton University, in 1994.  She considers teaching at Green Street is her “dream job”. 

Jenn grew up in Arlington, VT.  After college, she moved to Brattleboro where she has lived for 19 years. Jenn has two children and 2 bulldogs.  Some of Jenn’s hobbies include; photography, hiking, reading and snowboarding. Jenn is currently enrolled at SNHU working toward a master’s degree in math.

 

Jenn knew she wanted to be a teacher from a very young age.  When ever she had the chance, she would beg her brother to play school.  She likes to think that this helped him to be the excellent student that he was.  He would probably say differently though.  

Classroom Teacher:

Kelsey Manwaring

This is Kelsey’s sixth year teaching third grade at Green Street School. Before joining the Green Street team, she attended Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in both Elementary and Special Education in 2014.  Kelsey recently earned her master’s degree in Educational Leadership at Keene State College.

 

 Kelsey grew up in Keene, New Hampshire and returned to her hometown after college.  Kelsey now lives in Spofford, NH with her husband, Eric, and her cat, Lilly. When she is not in the classroom, she enjoys hiking, shopping, reading, and spending time with her family and friends.

Since elementary school, Kelsey has known that she wanted to be an educator. As she grew up and progressed through school, she was constantly watching and mimicking her teachers, in hopes of someday being in their position.

 

Kelsey feels incredibly lucky to spend each day with children, learning and growing alongside them.
