Special Education

Cynthia Brush-Pires, Special Educator



Christine Frost, Special Educator

My name is Christine Frost and I am a special educator at TES. I attended California State University Stanislaus, where I earned my BA in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Ethnic Studies, as well as my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I attended graduate school at Brandman University, for my MA in Educational Administration, and my Administrative Services Credential. My sixteen years working in education include classroom teaching, nine years as a site based administrator, and well as special education. After living in California for so many years, I am thrilled to be home in Vermont and teaching at TES! Outside of school, I can be found cooking, working on projects in my old farmhouse, or spending time with my family.


Michelle Smyth, Special Educator

I am so happy to have joined the wonderful TES community this year as the Kindergarten- 2nd grade special education teacher. I earned a Master’s in Education and have worked as a social studies teacher, an art professor, and as a special educator for the last five years. I have a special interest in equity and inclusion in education. I live with my two teenagers. For fun, I like to lift weights and do Argentine tango dancing.
