Kelly Hody and Jennifer Dobe have been named Teachers of the Year for the Orange East Stewardship Consortium for the 2020-2021 school year. They will be honored at a ceremony at the University of Vermont in March 2022.

Hody has been a teacher at Newbury Elementary School for more than 20 years, according to a press release from the Supervisory Union. Prior to working in special education in elementary school, she worked as a special tutor in Warren, New Hampshire in 2002, beginning to divide her time between teaching second and third graders and as a private tutor. Houde leads the school’s theater program and is the lead coach for the school’s “Finding Our Stride” running program.

According to the statement, “Her colleagues describe Kelly as sweet, hard-working, detail-oriented, helpful, and professional (noting that she’s always on the highway!)”. “Most importantly, she is strong in distinguishing learning for all students, is loved by her students and colleagues alike and uses her flexible, positive, and easy-going attitude to be a true cheerleader for Newbury!”

Dobby teaches art to students in grades K-12 at Blue Mountain Union School in Wales River, Vato. During the 2020-21 school year, she was a class advisor, Unified Arts team leader, and teacher educator, among other roles.

“Jennifer is truly a dynamic teacher and always puts the whole child in perspective,” according to the statement. “It strives every day to provide a first-class education and perseveres in the interest of the student, which then leads to high results in engagement and performance.”

“New Hampshire requires that every student take a course in economics as a requirement for high school graduation, and it also requires that this course contain some personal financial content,” John Pelletier, director of the Champlain Center, said in a press release. He cited research from Next Gen Personal Finance that 9% of New Hampshire high schools require high school students to take a self-contained personal finance course to graduate and another 74% offer it as an elective, but not a graduation requirement. “There is a clear need for more qualified personal finance experts in New Hampshire.”
