Mr. Sam Coleman

After graduating from Johnson State College in2005 with a degree in Elementary Education, I taught 3rd and 4th grade in Williamstown, VT for four years. I then worked as a school wide behavior consultant at Essex Elementary School, aK-2 school, in Essex, Vermont. I realized a passion for the social and emotional aspects of teaching, and the importance for all students to feel safe, respected, and happy at school. Currently, I am working toward a Masters degree in Special Education through the Vermont State Colleges. When I am not at work, my favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I am happy to be able to spend my work day at Tamim Academy. The staff and students have been great in welcoming me to the school.

We have a broad academic focus at Tamim Academy, but we also understand the importance of teaching children to be kind, to show gratitude, to take personal responsibility for themselves, and to be part of a classroom community. Through our explorations together, our goal is for students to be excited about school. We understand the importance of academic progress, but we also want students to have a positive relationship with their peers and teachers. We will strive to provide the best possible outcomes for each and every student.
