Principal – Pati Beaumont
After graduating with a degree in Psychology from the University of Vermont, Ms. Beaumont worked in a number of positions including a counselor for adjudicated youths, a financial manager for a securities firm, and an office manager at a doctor’s office, before beginning her career as an educator. After the birth of her third child, Ms. Beaumont decided to pursue a Master’s Degree in Special Education with a concentration in mathematics at Castleton State College (CSC). She began her teaching experience at Poultney Elementary School, teaching grades 5 and 6. Her next experience was teaching grades 5-8 mathematics, including remedial and enrichment classes, at Benson Village School for 8 years. During this time, she earned a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Educational Leadership from CSC. In 2000, Ms. Beaumont accepted a one year math position at Otter Valley Union High School, which was quickly followed by a position as Assistant Principal at Rutland Town School, a position she held for two years before becoming the Principal for the next ten years. In 2012, Ms. Beaumont was appointed the PreK-5 Co-Principal of Shelburne Community School, where she worked until accepting the position of Teacher of Mathematics at Rutland Middle School which she held for a little over two years. Ms. Beaumont is so excited to become the Principal of Rutland Middle School!
