Mrs. Jennifer Wheaton

I grew up in Maine until high school where I graduated from Harwood Union. After 4 years at UVM, I began my career at Crossett Brook Middle School for 3 years, followed by Roxbury Village School for 2 years, and I have been at Northfield for 9 years. This will be my 10th year at NES! During that time I completed a Masters program at UVM for a degree in mathematics. This year I am excited to teach fifth grade for the fourth year focusing on mathematics and math enrichment for all the fifth grade students! I also have the privilege of teaching fifth grade science to all the fifth grade students.

Ms. Darea Winters

I grew up in Upstate New York and went to college in Florida.  In 2002 I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida.  I taught second grade for two years before having my first child, then decided to stay at home with her and pursue my Master's degree in the evening.  In 2008 I graduated from Gulf Coast University with my Master's degree in Elementary Education. We moved from Florida to North Carolina in 2008 where I taught first grade at a spectacular little charter school for four years.  Finally, I was able to convince my family to make the move back up north where I was hired to teach sixth grade at Northfield Middle High School for a year.  I'm excited to start my eighth year at Northfield Elementary teaching 5th grade humanities, which includes reading, writing, word study, and global studies.
