Beth Brodie taught French and Spanish for 22 years in southern Vermont before relocating to the Burlington/Winooski area to pursue her doctoral studies in educational leadership in 2009. During her time in southern Vermont, Beth was active in almost every aspect of k-12 education as a teacher, assistant principal, school board member, coordinator of the new teacher mentoring program, advisor to the student council and high school advisory coordinator.

Her current research interests are in Student-led Parent Conferences and High School Advisory (the topic of her dissertation). As the half-time Fellow for Family-School Partnerships, she hopes to bring her understanding of dynamic structures that promote parent-student-teacher engagement to the Implementation Team. “Twenty-first century schools need to promote systemic three-way communication between teachers, students and families to ensure all students are able to be successful in school.”
