Kimberly Bell

SITE DIRECTOR / CO-TEACHER

Hello families, my name is Kimberly Bell and I am so excited to continue this year as site director/ co-teacher at the Middlebury Co-op School. I am super excited and thankful to be in this position this year and am hopeful and excited for the upcoming school year.

In 2017, I received my Bachelor’s  Degree in Child Development from Colby-Sawyer College in New Hampshire and have been working in preschool classroom as a lead teacher for the last six years.

I am in the midst of obtaining my Vermont teacher license (Birth-PreK) through the Agency of Education and completing my Master degree in early childhood education through Champlain College. In the classroom, I value free play, working with peers, problem solving and creating and exploring through a variety of means (blocks, planting, etc.).

My husband, Dylan and I live in North Ferrisburgh, Vermont. Together we have two dachshunds, Conway and Kona. In my free time I enjoy; working out, running, eating popcorn, camping with my family and plants! I look forward to spending the school year learning and growing with your kiddos.

Libbie Zuber

CO-TEACHER

Hello, my name is Libbie Zuber, and I am so excited to be the newest member of the Middlebury Co-Op School family! I have transferred over from another childcare center where I was the Lead Toddler Teacher and the Lead Pre-K teacher.

I have been working in school systems and Early Childhood Education (ECE) for almost 20 years now, and will be getting my Associates in ECE this spring. I have worked in several different childcare centers, along with being a substitute or Paraprofessional in grades K-12. After many years, I realized I really enjoy working with younger children and am happy to be here.

I currently live in Proctor with my two sisters, but am looking forward to moving towards Brandon in the coming months. I am a divorced mother of a daughter and am now a grandma of 1, with 1 on the way. My daughter Amanda and her husband John live in Orwell, where I spend a great deal of my free time with them and my grandson Levi. I am looking forward to becoming a grandma again in September.

I am excited about the style of teaching here at Middlebury Co-Op School, as it allows children a less structured environment than what I an accustomed to. Thank you for honoring me with the opportunity to work with and grow with your children here.
